    Screen Savers


    This is specifically for Linux Mint and BackTrack3, however it should be similar for all Linux OS. Where would I navigate to find where the screen savers are kept? I am looking to gather the awesome screen savers from Linux Mint and then install BackTrack3, then copy the screen savers there, so that I can have cool screen savers on BackTrack3. Hope someone can help. Thanks!

    Welcome to the forums!

    In Gnome you can find the default backgrounds here:

    /usr/share/pixmaps/backgrounds/gnome/

    They might the in the same place for KDE but not sure, and I'm unable to check it at the moment:

    /usr/share/pixmaps/backgrounds/kde/

    It may also depend on which sreensaver package you have installed to your system, there are a few available.
    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help, Please keep it on the forums only.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.
