Screen saver question

I am looking for a simple screen saver to run on my Slackware box that uses minimal cpu. KDE has quite a few screensavers, but most of them use significant cpu. I have the windows stars screen saver, but when I try to run it all I get is the setup screen.

Does anyone know how I can actually run ssstart.scr?

Or, does anyone have any screen saver recommendations that do not use significant cpu?
