Screensaver picture directory

I am using Fedora 8. When I set up the screensaver to display a slideshow it selects pics from the ~/Pictures directory. How can I change this to another directory - there is no option to do so in the Screensaver window.

You could mv your ~/Pictures directory to something else and make ~/Pictures a link to your desired directory for the screensaver.

Thanks Dave for your reply

I found F-Spot photo manager which allows me to tag pics for display in the screensaver

Thanks again.



fedora 8, screensaver
