We're working on it.

The next release wil include sound (and there will be waves in the sea, extra objects, extra stories,... )

If you have good sounds or music can you send it to me ?
Enabling sound is not so difficult , but finding good soundsamples is a lot more work.

The Mandrake package must be putting the screensave in the wrong location. As soon as the system is rebooted the screensave is gone. I know when I did some other rpm packages for Mandrake it required you to put a file in the /usr/lib/menu dir, but I have no idea for a screensaver.

Can you give me more information about this ?

On my mandrakesystem and the other computers where I installed tuxsaver, the screensaver didn't disapear.

I made a kde-desktop-link in
/usr/share/applnk-mdk/.hidden/ScreenSavers

Does anybody know if this is the right way to do it ?

I fixed the problem.
I've added an entry to /usr/lib/menu which automaticly generates menuentries.
This fix will be included in the next release.

thanks, for the bugreport

btw: the next release will include sound.

Well I do have an entry in /usr/share/applnk-mdk/.hidden/ScreenSavers for tuxsaver, but it will not show as a selected savers under screensave config. If I remove the rpm and reinstall I see it, but when I reboot the system it will not show up. I am not sure what to think.

thanks,

We are approaching the 1.0 release, so things ought to get kind of finished.

All the things I wanted to add to it for a 1.0 release are almost implemented. So I'm going to clean up the code and the stories a bit, and that will be the next release.

I'm always looking for people who want to change/add 3D objects and stories, but nobody seems to be interested.

I loaded the RPM (MDK 9.1 and KDE 3.1), and the settings and everything are in my screensaver selection screen, but the screensaver wont run. It just sits there on a black screen. I have a GeForce 4 Ti4200 with the NVIDIA linux drivers, so it should be sufficient enough. Any ideas on how to get it to run? Thanks!

Randy

possible problems:

1) most of the time it is a problem with the nvidia drivers.
Try to overwrite your nvidia drivers with the Mesa-rpms. Check if it works with the (unaccelerated) mesa drivers. Then try to reinstall the nvidia drivers.

2) Sometimes the problem is that the screensaver can't find the opengl library.
make sure there is a link in /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so. Try to run 'tuxsaver' in a console and see if there are any error messages about the libGL library.

3) did you install libGLU too ?, you need libGLU too, it is part of Mesa.

The NVIDIA drivers remove a MESA lib: libGL.so (and libGL.la)
---> this is probably (almost certain) why it isn't working.

*I have put libGL.so and libGL.la on my site.
Open it as root and extract it to /usr/lib/
http://users.pandora.be/muylkens/libgl.tar.gz
*Or maybe try to reinstall MESA.

When it still doesn't work:
Run tuxsaver in the konsole and mail me the output;
1) start konsole: 'ALT+F2' 'konsole' or search it in the K-menu.
2) type tuxsaver.kss in konsole
3) mail the output to toon.muylkens_AT_pandora.be (replace _AT_ with @: anti-spam)

I will try to solve the problem and mail you back immediatly.

btw: I have tried the RPM on my computer (MDK9.2 + NVIDIA drivers), and it worked. (after putting libGL.so in /usr/lib/)

bye

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
