I Get Everything but The Gluqlo Flip Clock Screensaver for Linux


I want to use the Gluqlo Flip Clock Screensaver for Linux in Ubuntu-MATE.
I tried but nothing works. All I wanted was the clock, but I get all the screensavers, except the clock.

The last thing I tried was,

Quote:
sudo apt-get install xscreensaver xscreensaver-gl-extra xscreensaver-data-extra

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:alexanderk23/ppa

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install gluqlo
No telling what I've done following the commands for the last 15 minutes, downloading the deb package, all just to add a screensaver. Not even there.

What can I do to get the clock?

Thank you,
Chris.

i can start it manually with
Code:
/usr/lib/xscreensaver/gluqlo
but it doesn't seem to show up in xscreensaver's gui.
it is possible to edit ~/.xscreensaver manually to add the screensaver.

btw, this is really the opposite of a screensaver, because it is totally static and will cause burn-in (yes, it is possible on LCD screens).

Have you tried:

$ sudo apt-get install --reinstall xscreensaver

If there's an install step to generate the available list, that should regenerate it. The GLText one can be changed to show date and time. No need to add a ppa for that one. And it moves around so less burn in.

See this:

I posted this a few years ago, having what sounds like a similar problem...granted, it's for openSUSE, but from the path(s) mentioned here, it may still offer a fix.
