I've been Googling this for days with no luck. I'm running UNR 9.04, and this is the first time I've used any form of Linux other than my TiVo. :)

I would love to find a screensaver that uses images from an RSS feed - like Picasaweb. I was able to find something close - a screensaver that schedules a download of pictures to a folder each night - but for a netbook this is not ideal.

Any suggestions?

Thanks for the help. Not exactly what I was hoping for, but I guess for now it's the best option out there.

I was hoping for a linux version of http://pack.google.com/intl/en/screensaver.html that uses the add/remove programs GUI. I am, after all, a beginner.
