Missing Screensavers

Postby georgetoon on Wed Jul 16, 2008 3:47 pm

I have Linux Mint installed on two different systems. Daryna edition. Both installs are missing some Open GL screensavers (Gears, Pipes, etc.) Do these need to be installed separately through the repo?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

There is only a selected number of screensavers included so we can fit the ISO on a CD
So yes you can install them - I have not checked if the ones you mention exists

I understand. I checked the repo and it appears I have most screen savers installed. So, if I want a specific screen saver that I've seen in other Linux distros, where do I find them and how do I install?
