SuSe 10.1/KDE Screensaver with Background Image Problem

Hi all,

Done a search but can't seem to locate anything that fits the bill so resorting to a question so appologies if it's been asked before !

SuSe 10.1 with KDE3.5 pretty much an out of the box re-build so no 'rubbish' affecting anything... All the screensavers work fine except I can't get any to work with the desktop images .. it defaults to the stock image and works with that instead (and previews with that to)? I've rebuilt a few times and still no joy, standard OpenGL stuff works fine .. just after a pointer or pointers to fix it.

Many Thanks in advance

Screensaver files are not normal image files. Desktop wallpaper files are usually normal image files.

Thanx stress_junkie

Yes you are correct a wrong choice of words I did mean wallpaper and it looks like I've got it working at last.

Many Thanks for the pointer
