Description of problem: Uninstalling the rss-glx-screensavers made all the
screensavers in KDesktop menu dissapear.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: Install and uninstall rss-glx-screensavers using yum.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install rss-glx-sceensavers
2. yum remove rss-glx-screensavers
3. right click on desktop in KDE, go to configure desktop->screen saver
Only random and blank are avaliable.
All standard screensavers I had previously should be avaliable.
All rss-glx* packages only contain a bunch of files so I don't see why
installing and removing these should affect KDE screensavers. Have you checked
whether the original KDE screensaver desktop files are still present in
/usr/share/applnk/System/ScreenSavers and/or your kdebase/kdeartwork packages
are installed correctly?
Package kdeartwork was not installed. I don't recall removing it at all!
I reinstalled kdeartwork and all my screensavers showed up. This is odd because
xscreensaver-base and xscreensaver-extras screensavers appeared, which were
I reinstalled glx-screensavers and reuninstalled it and my screensavers were fine.
I'm sorry. This is VERY weird. I swear they dissapeared *immediately* after I
unistalled these packages. I removed the gl screensavers because my computer
could not handle them. Like I said I do not recall uninstalling kdeartwork and
cannot fathom why I would have wanted to. I must be going nuts . . .
Blame it on the heat ;-).
