Description Gerry Tool 2003-02-06 23:13:07 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030120

Description of problem:
KDE in Red Hat Linux 8.0 and previous has a screensaver selection named "Random"
which cycles among available screensaver modules.

Gnome in Phoebe has this feature, but KDE does not.

I don't think this is a KDE upstream problem since Mandrake 9.1 Beta 3 also
contains the feature (not sure it actually work there.)

Please reinstate this feature in Phoebe and its successor distribution.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Right click on KDE desktop, select Configure Desktop
2.Select Screensaver
3.View list of available modules

Actual Results:  Random is no longer available in Phoebe 2 with all updates
supplied by rhn.

Expected Results:  Random should be available to cycle through available
screensaver modules for variety.

it's fixed in kdebase-3.1-5, which will be available in rawhide soon. Thanks for your report 

Comment 2 Gerry Tool 2003-02-21 01:47:46 UTC
Indeed, a screensaver named Random has been added to the KDE screensaver list, but it 
does nothing other than provide a blank screen.  There is no way to choose which screensaver 
modules should be included in the Random selection group. 
I checked this in Rawhide before Phoebe 3, and now again in Phoebe 3.  
This all works in RH 8.0, why not in the new release? 

Comment 3 Ngo Than 2003-02-22 15:28:03 UTC
ok, i have found a bug. Now it's fixed in kdebase-3.1-9 or later. Thanks for
your report.

Comment 4 Gerry Tool 2003-02-25 13:59:48 UTC
I installed kdebase-3.1-9 eta l and now the Random screensaver does work as
expected.  Thanks.
