Arrow Gnome screensaver settings

So feisty admittedly added/updated plenty, but for some reason, the developers of ubuntu feisty decided to get rid of the "settings" button on the screensavers preferences selection window. Is there any other way to access this? I want my settings!!! Thanks.

The problem is with Gnome. The Gnome developers like to oversimplify everything. A lot of Ubuntu users have complained about this, but I don't think Gnome developers are changing anything.

You can always switch to KDE if you want more configurability


feisty fawn, screensavers, ubuntu
