I was playing around with the screensavers in OpenSuSE 11.2 and found some problems:
Compiz being active make some screensavers not working. It happens with xscreensavers and with kscreensavers too. Mainly those who plays with images or screen captures, like “Distort”, “DecayScreen” and others. You got a blank screen or only part of the image o screen capture, beeing the rest black.
The webcollage screensaver doesn’t work at all. Seems it calls something nonexistent called “collage”
The Media Screen Saver doesn’t work. When launched from the console, here’s the output:
<unknown program name>(19373)/ main: 2 - parseCommandLine
<unknown program name>(19373)/ main: 3 - create KApplication
Unknown Mozilla toolkit (-17978386), assuming toolkit is GTK2
This may cause Mozilla to crash. If it crashes recompile mplayerplug-in with a different toolkit.
The system is up to date. Hardware is HP DV6 2170es, with i5 cpu and nVidia G 230M. nVidia bins are 195.36.15
Kernel is 188.8.131.52-0.2-desktop #1 SMP PREEMPT 2010-03-16 21:25:39 +0100 x86_64
Any ideas, specially on the weird behaviour of the distortion screensavers? May be graphic drivers bug? Or could it be solved with some configuration changes in compiz and/or nvidia settings?
Thanks in advance.
