Description of problem:
KDE in Red Hat Linux 8.0 and previous has a screensaver selection named "Random"
which cycles among available screensaver modules.
Gnome in Phoebe has this feature, but KDE does not.
I don't think this is a KDE upstream problem since Mandrake 9.1 Beta 3 also
contains the feature (not sure it actually work there.)
Please reinstate this feature in Phoebe and its successor distribution.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Right click on KDE desktop, select Configure Desktop
3.View list of available modules
Actual Results: Random is no longer available in Phoebe 2 with all updates
supplied by rhn.
Expected Results: Random should be available to cycle through available
screensaver modules for variety.
it's fixed in kdebase-3.1-5, which will be available in rawhide soon. Thanks for your report
Indeed, a screensaver named Random has been added to the KDE screensaver list, but it
does nothing other than provide a blank screen. There is no way to choose which screensaver
modules should be included in the Random selection group.
I checked this in Rawhide before Phoebe 3, and now again in Phoebe 3.
This all works in RH 8.0, why not in the new release?
ok, i have found a bug. Now it's fixed in kdebase-3.1-9 or later. Thanks for
I installed kdebase-3.1-9 eta l and now the Random screensaver does work as
