View Full Version : [kde] [SOLVED] SlideShow screensaver in kde4

April 24th, 2008, 07:57 PM
I installed Kubuntu KDE4 8.04 yesterday. The install went fine and everything seemed to work just fine!

When I opened the System Settings to turn a screensaver I found I needed to install some. After a quick 'sudo apt-get install kscreensaver-kde4' I had more options to choose from. However, my favorite screensaver, Slide Show, did not work. It only displays a blank screen. Running it from the command line gives a lot of
QPainter::begin: Widget painting can only begin as a result of a paintEvent.

Is this a bug, should I report it or is it known? Will this be fixed in Hardy or will I have to live without it until Intrepid?

My humble guesses:
Report it,
Choose a less complex screensaver,
check for updates often.

I like the "blank screen" screen saver. Saves cycles.
