I try the following the url - http://www.freesoftwaremagazine.com/...ur_screensaver
to add a new theme (glmatrix) to my gnome-screensaver. However, seemingly it doesn't work. I can only watch the name displayed in the gnome-screensaver-preference, but not work in preview mode at all.
According to the article, I only need to edit the glmatrix.desktop in /usr/lib/applications/screensaver.
What steps I might miss? Or anything edited in the .desktop file is incorrect?
By the way, I am sure the glmatrix works because I can execute it directly with command `/usr/lib/xscreensaver/glmatrix.`
The environment is Desktop lenny (upgrade from sarge)/ kernel 2.6.20/ gdm 2.18.4/ gnome-screensaver 2.20.0
I appreciate any suggestion.
Thank you very much.
