Question No screensavers on Mandrake Linux 9.2 using KDE

I installed Mandrake 9.2 and i picked KDE for my window manager. There were no screensavers installed so i installed some off but they do not appear in the screensaver config area. Does anyone else have this problem. I can pick the screensavers by using Gnome but i like KDE better so i would like to make screensavers work on KDE.
