    where is .xscreensaver folder located? 12.04

    12.04

    i need to edit a file for matrixview to work in xscreensaver........

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...lx/+bug/537011
    Okay, Reading the documentation for rss-glx, there is a README.xscreensaver file with the following information in it:
    EITHER ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Run /usr/bin/rss-glx_install, which will look at your existing
    ~/.xscreensaver and add any missing entries. You probably want to back that
    file up as the script is only lightly tested
    OR ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Manually add the following lines after the line that starts with "programs:"
    in ~/.xscreensaver.
    -- Cut Here --
    GL: "Cyclone" cyclone --root \n\
    GL: "Euphoria" euphoria --root \n\
    GL: "Fieldlines" fieldlines --root \n\
    GL: "Flocks" flocks --root \n\
    GL: "Flux" flux --root \n\

    GL: "Sundancer2" sundancer2 --root \n\
    GL: "BioF" biof --root \n\
    GL: "BusySpheres" busyspheres --root \n\
    GL: "SpirographX" spirographx --root \n\
    GL: "MatrixView" matrixview --root \n\
    GL: "Lorenz" lorenz --root \n\

    edit IIII

    ok, i cant cut and paste the correct text, this forum is messing it up cause it has too many spaces

    rss-glx is a GLX port of the Really Slick Screensavers collection by
    Terry Welsh (http://www.reallyslick.com/). Also included are several
    other OpenGL screensavers ported from other platforms.

    The screensavers can either be run as stand-alone applications or get
    integrated into XScreenSaver's list of active screensavers. More
    information about using these with xscreensaver can be found in
    /usr/share/doc/rss-glx.


    Screensavers included in this package are: Biof, Busy Spheres,
    Colorfire, Cyclone, Drempels, Euphoria, Feedback, Fieldlines, Flocks, Flux,
    Helios, Hufo's Smoke, Hufo's Tunnel, Hyperspace, Lattice, Lorenz Attractor,
    MatrixView, Plasma, Pixel City, Skyrocket, Solarwinds, SpirographX, and
    Sundancer2.

    Re: where is .xscreensaver folder located? 12.04

    It is in your /home folder by the looks of it.

    Open the file manager (Nautilus) which will most likely open at your /home folder and press Ctrl + H to show hidden files. The period in the path signifies a hidden file or folder.

    PS. Obfuscating profanity in your postings isn't a great idea.
