Question installing a screensaver

Hey all, I was wondering, how do you install a downloaded screen saver? I have no clue.

hmm...I've never downloaded a screensaver before but my assumption would be it's just like an executable. I think xscreensaver manages screensavers.

Try dropping the screensaver binary in a path that xscreensaver might look and see if it picks it up.

man xscreensaver for detailed information.
