I have found that none of the screen savers work in the KDE desktop
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2002-10-23 23:10:39 EDT
mleppelman@galaxynet.com: unrelated issue, already in bugzilla separately.
Comment 3 Anthony Green 2003-09-14 18:54:31 EDT
webcollage-helper is creating progressive jpeg's that can't be loaded with 

My work-around was to rename webcollage-helper to X-webcollage-helper, although
somebody should come up with a proper fix.

This bug is quite old now.  Given the lack of activity on this report and the
likelihood that this bug has already been fixed, I am going to close it.  If you
encounter the problem discussed in this report with Fedora Core 3 or a recent
version of xscreensaver, feel free to reopen.
