    Screen Saver for Ubuntu 11.10?

    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 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.
