The Xscreensaver package contains a matrix-like screensaver out-of-the-box. It's graphical, though, not ncurses. I don't think I've encountered an ncurses-like screensaver on Linux, though there is very much I don't know.

hmm, at least on archlinux it definitely depends on ncurses.

and btw, any ol' terminal window can be used as a screensaver with a little fiddling.
