rss-glx not working in KDE
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:51 EST
Description of problem:
rss-glx screensavers do not work under KDE
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC6, KDE and rss-glx
2. Log in to KDE, open the screensaver preferences
3. All regular GL screensavers work, RSS ones do not.
Not even the preview of the screensavers in the little previw window works
The full screen preview does not either.
And after the Idle timeout kicks in, the screensaver does not start
Working RSS screensavers
I can however start all the screensavers manually from the command line and then
This problem is caused by the fact that rss-glx-kde .desktop files invoke
kxsconfig, which is provided by kdeartwork-extras. The thing is that
kdeartwork-extras is not required by rss-glx-kde. Other thing here is that
kdeartwork-extras pulls xscreensaver-extras and xscreensavergl-extras, so IMHO
the better way would be to package kxsconfig for instance with kdeartwork (that
would require cooperating with core maintainers, though). Hope that helps.
I have filed an appropriate bug report, see bug #220784.
Great :) Installing kdeartwork-extras fixed my problem :)
Thanks alot :)
current rss-glx-kde packages should have the needed requirements
