Description of problem:
With KDE set as the desktop, most of the screen savers show blank screen. When I hit the test button or wait for the timer the screen just turns black. If I select the Euphoria GL screen saver, the only half the screen shows an image. The rest is black.
I switched back to GNOME and there was only one screensaver available - Lisa. It was also a blank screen.
This was working fine on FC3. I just upgraded two computers to FC4, and have the issue on both.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Right click on desktop, select configure desktop
2. Select screensaver
3. Try to test any screen saver
Expected Results: Should have seen a screen saver
I was able to get the screen savers to work with
yum install xscreensaver-base xscreensaver-extras xscreensaver-gl-extras
This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.
Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?
upgraded to FC5 and haven't seen it
