View Full Version : [ubuntu] Screen Saver for Ubuntu 11.10?

October 15th, 2011, 02:43 AM
Hi, I just upgraded to Ubuntu 11.10 but I cannot find a "screen saver" feature which will allow random pictures to come upon my screen when the computer has been idle for a period of time (which I had on the previous version of Ubuntu). The only thing I was able to find was the feature which will turn off the monitor after a prescribed time.

Is there a program/application I can download that will allow me to do this? I would prefer a program that will allow me to use a specific folder within the "Pictures" folder, rather than all pictures in the pictures folder.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Check this (http://www.webupd8.org/2011/10/things-to-tweak-after-installing-ubuntu.html) article, under the heading "No Screensaver in GNOME 3.2". A few terminal commands, and you get about 200 screensavers! I don't know if it has a setting for showing images from a certain folder, but maybe you'll find something else.
