    [SOLVED] How to copy screen-savers between the distros?


    I'm using openSUSE 11.0 for some time. Recently I installed Fedora 11. I find that the choice of screen-savers in Fedora is poor compared to openSUSE.

    Therefore, I would like to borrow some of my favorite screen-savers from openSUSE for use in Fedora.

    Is it possible?
    If yes, need instructions how to do it?

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    The quick answer is "it depends". The long answer is "it depends" upon whether or not the screen saver is a stand-alone executable or is integrated directly into the desktop manager (kde, gnome, etc).
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!

    How can I find out if it is stand-alone or integrated?

    My desktop manager is GNOME. Where should I look for screen-savers?

    I've done some Google research and found what I was looking for.
    xscreensaver-4.14.tar.gz can be downloaded on the web and contains the screensaver collection which comes with openSUSE.
