Smile Aquarium Screensaver alternative idea

Having looked at the various options for installing various aquarium screensavers on Linux, I came to the conclusion that downloading and copying to the Home Pictures folder pictures of Coral the best option.

There are some great pictures on the Internet that can be downloaded free, and as today's screens are far better than ever I really enjoy the fabulous colours.

This works better than trying to install and use a Windows screensaver.

For me personally, the screensaver "Atlantis" is probably the best one I know of that is available under Linux, although it's not exactly an aquarium but an underwater view of whales and sharks.

Here's a thread I posted in the Kubuntu forum a few years ago concerning your issue.
