[SOLVED] Missing screensavers after 17.1 --> 17.2 upgrade?

Post by Ginsu543 » Fri Jul 10, 2015 7:41 pm

Hi guys,

So, I recently upgraded my 17.1 Cinnamon 64-bit to 17.2 using the Update Manager. The upgrade itself went without a hitch. However, after the upgrade, I noticed that only the Stars screensaver was installed. No other screensavers are available.

Is this normal? If not, how can I get the other default screensavers?

This quote Clem made will fix you up!
You can for instance install xscreensaver-data, xscreensaver-data-extra and xscreensaver-gl-extra to get more of them.
