Description of problem:
in the kde screensaver configuration dialog all of the rss-glx entries appear and can be configured but they never run, the mini preview screen is blank as is the fullscreen preview.
i suspect the possibility that kde is looking in the wrong location/filename for the executable files since they are all named rss-glx-<name> which was not always the case in previous releases.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install rss-glx-kde and rss-glx
2. open configure desktop->screensaves
3. attempt to use screensaver by clicking and attempting to preview
nothing, black preview
screensaver should have run in mini preview and fullscreen preview
have not tested in standard screensaver mode but i have no reason to suspect that it would run.
The fix will probably need to happen in rss-glx
Fwiw, last I checked, these all worked for me. ??
Actually, I think the issue is in the -kde package. If you look at the .desktop
files, they say things like
whereas the executables in rss are more like
So probably all of the -kde .desktop files need to be edited to add the rss-
prefix to the executable.
