A bunch of shots from the 2007 "Gathering of Mustangs" in Ohio used to appear after 10 minutes, from my "Pictured" directory. How go get that back in 12.04?
Thanks!

You can't, it's another thing that Gnome has eliminated. Xscreensaver is still available in the repositories.

Sad but true. Screen savers have been gone for a while now, but between you and I, my family and I miss them too. :sad:

About the first thing I do on install (lots on development unstable!) is wallpaper of my wife in a swimsuit on an australian beach vacation. I've a number of such pics if I want to set up a rotating display.

This is not a screen saver, but a wallpaper show and there appears to be a precise available. https://launchpad.net/~wallch/+archive/wallch-ppa

sudo apt-get install xscreensaver xscreensaver-gl xscreensaver-gl-extra xscreensaver-data xscreensaver-data-extra rss-glx;
then look for screensaver in your menus
enjoy your 200+ screensavers and good luck finding the one you are looking for :lolflag:

you may need to add xscreensaver -nosplash to your Startup Applications

Well, it's no big problem to download things using Software Center. I downloaded xscreensaver and its add-ons and am running it now. It works fine (in KDE, which I'm using now, since Unity and Gnome crash).

Total bummer, dudes and dudettes.

So there's no native application to even do a simple stand alone slideshow?

Absolutely bamboozeled, being all the world is fun and games; and so has gone Ubuntu IMHO...

As pqwoerituytrueiwoq mentioned, you could use xscreensavver.


sudo apt-get install xscreensaver xscreensaver-gl xscreensaver-gl-extra xscreensaver-data xscreensaver-data-extra


I also miss gnome-screensaver as you.
