    11.10 Screensaver?

    Has anyone found the screensaver options yet? I cannot find them... are there even any?

    Gnome3 did away with screen savers. I guess they figured screen savers are no longer needed.
    Thank you for your contributions. "So long and thanks for the fish!"

    Well really there is not since LCD screens don't really ghost the image onto it. But still it is pretty... I want them back.

    Most people use LCDs not CRTs, so technically I think they're probably right - screensavers aren't necessary. People have grown accustomed to them, however, and many people like them.

    Ok, I did that, but I can't find the one I wanted (I forget its name). It simply showed a slide show of random pictures from my photo library, with very slight pan/zoom applied to each.

    Thanks for posting this. Screensavers may not be needed anymore but I still enjoy looking at them!

    The problem with some of the older savers was that they used a lot of cpu some of the bad ones used100%. I guess I still like em though.
