LINUX SCREENSAVERS, And KDE


Ok this may be a stupid question, but i really prefer KDE over Gnome, BTW i am now running Mandrake community Version 10 kernel 2.6.3-4mdkenterprise;
anyway i want to get new screen savers, i have read on the internt about a package called "Really slick screensavers" but it runs in the xscreensaver system, i know that Gnome uses this but i also read that KDE uses its own screensaver manager, it said that i would have to disable KDE's screensaver system and install xscreensaver to get these screensavers. Is this right? or does anyone know where i can download good screensavers for KDE?

No, not true!!

download and compile for your system........then
copy the executables to..........
/usr/X11R6/lib/xscreensaver

then copy the desktop config files to ..........
~/<home dir>/.kde/share/applnk/System/ScreenSavers/

putting the desktop config file in your users/root home directory will
enable the screensaver to show up in KDE xscreensaver menu!!
