Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 64517
several choices listed by xscreensaver are not installed
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:27:18 EDT
Description of Problem:
Under GNOME, several screen saver choices listed by the xscreensaver-demo
program are not in fact included in the installation. Each such choice causes
the xscreensaver-demo program to give a black screen with an error message
saying it could not execute the given choice.
The list of missing screen saver choices:
No such programs exist with a typical GNOME installation. No such
individualized packages appear by these names on the five Valhalla discs. If
these are in an extended screen saver bonus package, this was not installed nor
made clear anywhere in the documentation.
Either include all the xscreensaver choices in the installation, or redact the
default list of available xscreensaver choices to match the distribution. An
upstream solution would be to make xscreensaver automatically remove or hide
choices which are not actually present on the system.
This is fixed in 4.05-1.
