Very Happy Hello,
majorfoo, nice find..
I somehow missed that...
When I make a 515 pet, I will add that in to the launcher...
The 5.07 pet didnt include GL, like pupxscreensaver (512) did, because then, not too many Puppy users were running GL/Mesa, like today...
I never knew that root user thing was inhibiting previews..
Really, some xscreensaver should be a standard...
BTW... Xscreensavers can run the Linux "Really Slick Screensavers" binaries... Smile

Anyone overcome the perl error with glslideshow????

Hope that you will make the 515 pet soon. Anxious to check out your version.

note to sky and puppyluvr

I compiled xscreensaver-515 today and it contains 200 screensavers, one of which is GlSlideshow. It shows no preview available when I select it. It I click on preview, receive the following messages

Glslideshow: unable to load font "-*-helvetica-medium-r-normal-*180-*",using "fixed"
xscrensaver:13:55:04 -: child pid 21540 (glslideshow) terminated with signal 11

not sure how to handle this - can you provide advice

When you selected the settings on Xscreensaver-515, did you set it up this way?:

select GLSlideshow
In 'mode', did you choose 'Only One Screen Saver'
In 'Advance' did you choose 'Random Image' and put in a location from your home directory that holds images?

Do you have screenshot of the 'GLSlideshow settings' page?

Do you have any other screensavers running in the background?

Well, there seems to be an issue with either this Debian download or PetGet or perhaps something else.

The screensaver module content from XScreeensaver_5.15-2 are loaded into the menu list under 'desktop'. (I'd show you a screenshot but the menu disappears when I initiate ScreenGrabber.)
For Example: The savers from Xscreensaver_data which are 'Abstractle....Fuzzy Flakes...Swirl...etc are all listed in menu/desktop along with the usual desktop apps.

This is happening in 528, 525 running as Live CDs. (And, I think 520, but don't quote me.)

Sigh! Anyone have any clues?

no other screensavers running - trying to run GLSlideshow and it shows no preview available in window. If I click on preview, then I get the messages shown above regarding helvetica font and termination signal 11

Possible problem with my video card in older computer, bios shows feb 2005 and video card is on motherboard.

Have tried unsuccessfully to locate the helvetica font. Any ideas

BTW, did you get email from me with xsceensaver-5.14.pet attached

Did you create the script from link I provided earlier. If so, run xscreensaver from the script

Here's a very small striiped down Xscreensaver package for lucid, I removed all but one screensaver, its set for 5 mins to come on, I disabled the screensaver whenever gnome-mplayer is playing a video and when it stops the countdown starts again, If you want to permantly stop the screensaver, you can remove the link in /root/Startup/xscreensaver
if you want to increase/decrease the time just edit ./root/xscreensaver <-- hidden folder and the very first line of actual code says timeout: 0:05:00 that means five minutes. This contains no gui, etc just edit the time and you should be good. also if you temperately want to stop the screensaver just open a terminal and type killall xscreensaver and when you want to re-enable it, just open a terminal and type xscreensaver or just restartX server Smile

Thank you ttuuxxx,
This saver is working on lupu-520. I'll test lupu-528 later tonight.
Is it possible that the program module *wormhole* can be replaced with the slideshow screensaver module glslideshow as described in JWZ'a FAQ? http://www.jwz.org/xscreensaver/faq.html#slideshow

hi ummm I don't think so, I made this a extremely reduced version, Most of the extra bins(program executables) have been removed, I made this package just for the person who whats a basic no frills screensaver. You would need the extra parts which were removed to use the extra functions.

Is it possible instead of the module *wormhole* the program *slideshow* could be pointed to then the *slideshow* module could point to a user's image directory?
