Q: screen saver

Post by D.H. Lian » Thu, 18 Dec 1997 04:00:00



Hello all,

Recently, my supervisor saw a screensaver running on my terminal. He ask
me if we can create a screensaver involving the company's logo. Frankly,
I don't mind using a personalized screensaver. I told him I would look
into it.
Since my background is not in programming, instinctively, my first (and
probably only) place to start is this valuable and informative
newsgroup.
Can anyone shed some lights on this issue (like what I need ... C
compiler,graphic editor, artistic talent, etc)?

My system configuration:
IBM RS/6000 43p
AIX 4.1.5.0

Thanks in advance.

1. Problems with Gnome Screen Saver and XScreen Saver

Hello Everyone. I am using Red Hat 6.2 and Helix Gnome and I am having
the most bizarre problem between GNOME Screen Saver and XScreen Saver.
The problem is, I have a screen saver selected in GNOME Screen Saver
to start after 10 minutes and when that screen saver runs, it starts
my XScreen Saver instead of the GNOME Screen Saver I have specified.
As it stands now, I can no longer get my GNOME Screen Saver to
function. The only thing that works is my XScreen Saver. It appears
that XScreen Saver is overriding GNOME Screen Saver somehow. The GNOME
Screen Saver did function normally for a while until I started playing
with the XScreen Saver. I am wondering if there is anyway to restore
the defaults for either GNOME Screen Saver or XScreen Saver. Also, I
am wondering what the purpose is of having both screen saver programs
one 1 system. I understand that GNOME Screen Saver is used for the
GNOME GUI environment and that XScreen Saver is used for the X Server,
but it seems that they conflict with each other. Anyway, any help
would be greatly appreciated.
