Can't find a clock screensaver for debian


Hi,

I've been googling around for about an hour now, trying to find a (digital) clock screensaver.

Can somebody please point me to one? I'm running debian (woody) and I've got xscreensaver installed.

Thanks, umk

GLText(Clock) ... it's a standard xscreensaver module.


Cheers,
Tink

I've checked again in my /usr/lib/xscreensaver, but the gltext(clock) file is not there. Googling "debian packages gltext(clock)" wasn't helpful either. Can you please tell me where I can download it from? Thanks umk

You need to use:

apt-get install xscreensaver-gl

The base xscreensaver package does NOT include the 3d accelerated OpenGL xscreensavers.

One thing that's often much more fruitful than searching with Google is to search the Debian packages list. Do this with:

apt-cache search screensaver
