Re: Need info now: Bouncingcow screensaver !?



Interesting, I didn't know there were two different screensaver
packages, and I am using the xscreensaver.

I am having a problem with Gnome (running Fedora 6) - when I boot up, I
get a message about "could not run Gnome settings daemon" (EVERY TIME,
100%), and a few things don't work, but the only one that really
bothered me was the screensaver.

On my old system (RH 7.0) I used xscreensaver, so I just added that to
the list of things to run at startup and now I have no problems. I
suppose I ought to try to fix that "settings daemon" thing ... but I'm
getting set to install Fedora 7 on my alternate partition, and with luck
that will fix it :-) .

Hi;

Only the Bouncing Cow screensaver will do. Used to be able to set the
speed of the bouncing. It is currently far too fast. No one would
believe that the cow(s) is using a trampoline. It must be slowed down.


Curious, are you using gnome-screensaver or xscreensaver ?

afaik, gnome-screensaver does not provide a dialog to configure
screensaver options. These option are part of a desktop file saved
under /usr/share/applications/screensavers/, and this desktop file would
have to be edited .

$ rpm -ql bounching_cow_package |grep desktop



How ??
