Mint 19.1 cinnamon screensaver stuff

Post by tgwilt »

Ok, I just upgraded my Mint 19 to 19.1. The upgrade went smoothly, and I experienced no major issues. In the upgrade instructions, it said that the xscreensaver stuff no longer works with the cinnamon screensaver, so I followed the instructions to remove the xscreensaver, and the screeensavers that I installed with that package.

Now, when I use the System settings or the Screensaver app, there are no screensavers at all from which to choose. Not a big deal, but just wondered if there is a way to add some screensavers to the cinnamon screensaver?
