KDE screen-saver in MD9.2


Hi,

I'm running Mandrake 9.2, and I've installed what I believe is all the packages for KDE including xscreensaver.
but when I open the xscreensaver, I don't get any screensavers to choose from.
I'm assuming I havn't installed all the packages needed.

What could I be missing?

thanks for your time.

Hey try this:
From your panel (start) menu Confituration->KDE->LookNFeel->Screen Saver
I belive this is set up default with KDE

well I can open the setup tool, but there are no screensavers listed. I'm assuming maybe I need someother package where all the screensavers are?

Hmmm. xscreensaver is the package you want. Try an uninstall reinstall maybe something happened during installation. I have 9.2 and it is working good for me.
