Electric sheep

Anyone know how to get electric sheep to work as a screensaver in LMDE Xfce?
It installed but has added a separate listing on the menu.
Clicking on the menu and my laptop starts to work hard, CPUs at 100%, and fan working hard, but electric sheep doesn't work.

Thanks for the reply.
I am slowly learning Linux.

I did the install via Terminal but have checked Synaptic and flam3 and wxwidgets are installed - installed and latests versions match.

Do you mean autogen.sh made a new folder?
or did it really install and you have an option in applications like with vlc?
i managed to build some folders but they wouldn't complete the ./configure step
none of my stuff was the right versions
it doesn't seem to be supported real good right now.
what happens if you type electricsheep in terminal?

Clicking on the icon on the menu bar does nothing but as you suggested I typed electricsheep in Terminal and here is a picture of the result.
