Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 49139
forest screensaver doesn't work (from Gnome?)
Last modified: 2013-04-02 00:15:28 EDT
Description of Problem:
Playing with screensavers via the gnome control centre. Selected forest,
'Try', and waited..
unrecognised option: -cycles
Options include: -root, -window, -mono -install, -noinstall,
-visual <arg>, -display <arg>, -ncolors <arg>.
xscreensaver: child pid 20516 (forest) exited abnormally (code 1).
man forest says there is a -cycles. I don't understand the way the
/usr/share/control-center/.data/Forest.desktop file works, but perhaps
it needs a number? Or it has one and doesn't need it?
I didn't change any defaults, btw, I just selected it and 'try'.
This defect considered MUST-FIX for Fairfax gold-release.
The manpage is fixed in xscreensaver-3.33-2.
Assigning to control-center so the desktop file can be fixed.
fixed in rawhide.
