 TuxSaver still works in 2014

TuxSaver still works with modern Linux versions like Ubuntu 14.04. I've copied all necessary files in /opt and use XScreenSaver for it to start.

If anyone is interested, I could upload all what is needed in a archive somewhere.

 TuxSaver still works in 2015

Hello, it's me again.

All you need are some debs:


I took these from Debian Squeeze.
You must load DCOPserver and export the library path paths. That's it.

Hello trekker,

can you give some additional hints on running TuxSaver (on a current Debian system)? I got the debs from Debian squeeze, but don't quite understand your last sentence about the DCOPserver...

Hello groj.

I've all debs extracted in a new directory /opt/tuxsaver.

As openbox user then I've added

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/tuxsaver/lib:/opt/tuxsaver/lib/i386-linux-gnu

in the file /etc/xdg/openbox/enviroment and

/opt/tuxsaver/bin/dcopserver &

in /etc/xdg/openbox/autostart.

I think as KDE user you use other configuration files e.g. .desktop files in ~/.config/autostart and so on.

Oh, and I've symlinked /opt/tuxsaver/bin/tuxsaver.kss to /usr/bin/tuxsaver

and don't forget the entry in ~/.xscreensaver with

tuxsaver -root \n\

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
