KDE Screen Saver Bug?

Screen savers work when I test them through the KDE control module. But they just show black when the idle time is elapsed. BTW, this in on RH8 with the latest nVidia drivers. Also glxgears shows about 3700 FPS.

Check out this thread, we just handled this.

Read through the first page of posts, after that it gets into specific errors due to a miss-typed command. Just make the 2 directories and then copy the screensavers over. If you get confused, ask before you do anything.
