thank you for building kcometen4, this is my favorite screensaver and the recent update to fix the intel chipset issue really helped.

As a note, if you wish to install this screensaver on slackware checkout http://slackbuilds.org/result/?search=kcometen4&sv=

No problem. I have a thinkpad, so I was suffering too.

Thanks for the slackbuild.

I have an Intel card and I am currently using version 1.0.6. However, I do not see any problems. What is the problem that is worked around in 1.0.7?

A workaround is helpful, but if it is a bug in the Intel drivers, it should be fixed there. :)

The screensaver uses a lot of point sprites. I noticed a while back that it would take up more and more memory if the point sprites were given non-integer sizes, but this only happened with the Intel driver. So I just rounded to the nearest integer.

I think the Intel driver--or maybe it was mesa--has been fixed since then, but I kept that workaround in kcometen4 in case people were still using whichever version was causing the problem. It didn't affect the appearance anyway.

I'm not sure what problem mfillpot was dealing with. I used to see other problems with the Intel driver but they've since been fixed.

I didn't have any problems building with FreeBSD 8.2, but I only have the precompiled binaries installed.

It looks like you've installed multiple versions of KDE, and it's causing problems for the linker. Is that the case?

OK, I successfully compiled and installed kcometen4. Now, the problem is I can't see the screen saver in the list, even if I put in .xinitrc:
export KDEDIRS=/usrlocal:/usr:/usr/local/kde4
Any clue how to show it in the screensaver list :)

Verified working in KDE 4.9.

Only issue I had was it installed to /usr/local instead of /usr. Solved easiely by creating a symbolic link.

Nice work here!

 Kcometen4 Does Not Play Well With KDE 4.10.x

 
 by gldickens3 on: Apr 7 2013
 
Score 50%

This is my favorite screensaver as well. Great job and thanks! I have the kcometen4 screensaver configured to use the desktop for a cubed background display. However, the screen lock password dialog was changed in KDE 4.10 such that the screenlock default wallpaper (which is plain black) is now erroneously used by Kcometen4 instead of the cubed background.

See these bug reports:

https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=310871
https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=315442
https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=316296

It is not clear if the KDE developers are going to fix this or leave it as is. So, is there anyway to modify Kcometen4 so that it works with the cubed screen background for KDE 4.10.x as it did in KDE versions prior to 4.10?

Thanks,

Gordon

Thanks for the info. From what I read, it's designed to blank the screen before a screensaver starts. I don't see a way around it.

The option to use the desktop as a background will probably have to go away.

Hi jstamp,

Thanks for the reply!

That's too bad! I really like the desktop background. I hope that you can find a way around this so that users can continue to use the cubed desktop background.

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.
