How do you install a screensaver on ubuntu MATE?

Hi. I have recently got a sonicintro.mp4 screensaver and I was having difficulties putting it on the screensavers section. Please, SOMEONE HELP!!! :disappointed_relieved:

hi @penguin_nedyalkov,

install the following package via the terminal (Ctrl + Alt + t) and then browse for the screen-saver you installed!:

sudo apt-get install xscreensaver

Thanks wolfram!

It works perfectly and my screensaver ( i GOT IT FROM THE RETROPIE FORUM):smile: WORKS!!!

That solution is incorrect, the right way to do it (and to install the correct packages) is via the Getting Started section of Ubuntu MATE Welcome :slight_smile:


Sorry, but I accidentally made a user SuperUser instead of me! :neutral_face:
