[SOLVED]screensaver - Pictures folder Mint 18.3 Mate

Post by coffee412 » Fri Sep 13, 2019 8:15 pm

I thought that there was a screensaver to show your pictures directory or perhaps configure what directory to use? I have a client asking for it back since I upgraded her from Mint 17.3 Mate to 18.3 .

Does anyone know where I can get it?

Thank you,
coffee

Hi,

What do you mean? That there is no Save in folder drop-down in mate-screenshot --interactive in 18.3? 19.2 has it...

Drinking coffee right now, have a nice one too, :D

No, I couldnt find it anywhere. There was a post I was able to recreate the option in the screensavers selection. Before that I looked for a possible missing program or add on and didnt find that. Finally found a post by someone asking about the same thing and found the fix.

Absolutely, enjoying the second pot already. :mrgreen:

I didn't know it was so bare bones in MATE version used in 18.3, thanks. mate-screenshot 1.22.0, if you change folder from the drop-down, uses it as the new default location for all subsequent shots taken.

Cheers.
