a Fond Au Revoir

To all y'all, Thank you for putting up with my usually dumb questions over the past 10+ years when I added Linux Mint alongside my Windows on my various computers. I really enjoyed using LMDE2 (Mate), but was very disappointed when LMDE 3 was only offered in the Cinnamon format. I had also been hopi...

Mint 19 Screensaver

In the older Linux Mint Mate editions (including LMDE2), there was a screen saver option which allowed you to access your pictures folder and randomly show those pics (JPEG photos) at a timed interval you could set yourself.

How do I set up Mate Screensaver

I have installed the Mate desktop in order to use a screensaver, but when I go to screensaver, I only get the Cinnamon default (locked) message I'd like to be able to open the Mate screensaver and use my "pictures" folder as a rotating screensaver. How o I do that?
Thanks,

2 or 3 things I'd like to have on LMDE3

Howdy, I know there is not a "Mate" edition of LMDE 3, but can I get a "Mate" format for the program? 2) I'd like a screensaver program which uses my "pictures" file, one available in the repository? 3) I'd like to be able to put Movieorganizer 2.8.6 or 2.7.7 and believe I can do this with Crossover...
