Subject description: screensaver for Puppy
 

Very Happy Hello,
I have a hacked xscreensaver Pet, if anyone is interested...
I took my old 5.07 pet and add the compiled binaries from 5.12...
Still complains about running as root..(just click OK)
Previews dont work...( I`ll fix that later..)

The good news:
All the screensavers work..ALL 218 of them, the 18 GL included, even FontGlide...
EDIT..Compiled and tested on 5.11 On 5.25 FontGlide fails perl all the rest work...

Eventually I will try compiling/petting up 5.12 again, but for now the binaries will do...
So I just hacked them into 5.07... Very Happy
It is big...25mb pet...60mb decompressed, because they are ALL there, and the man and locale directories as well...
If anyone is interested....
http://puppylinuxstuff.meownplanet.net/puppyluvr/pupxscreensaver-1.1.pet Username: puppy Password: linux
or @ the meownplanet link in my sig...
I named it pupxscreensaver-1.1.....
Basically it is all the 5.12 binaries launched from the 5.07 GUI...
Still installs as XScreensaver 5.07, but the PPM sees it as pupxscreensaver...

Thanks Jay for all your hard work that you do for the Puppy Community as it's very much appreciated my fellow Puppian friend! Smile And keep up the great work on - not only this screensaver ( which we've really needed! ) - but on ALL that you do!

Two thumbs up Jay!!

Cheers/Amicalement,

Hello, I keep getting the "Error: Directory does not exist:"/usr/share/wallpapers"" in Slacko 531, and most of the previews don't work.

Another thing is most of the visuals inform that it does not support GLX extension.

Hope you can help. Thanks in advance.

The link seems to be broken. Is there another way I can try out xscreensaver?

Very Happy Hello,
If you are using an ubuntu pup, and enable all the ubuntu repos in the PPM,
you can find it. But you may have to chase down a few dependancies..
