Hello hexdef101

What's wrong with using this one: xscreensaver-5.07-i686.pet, it works OK in Puppy-4.31
Username = puppy
Password = linux

It comes complete with 137 screensavers.

The only problem with it, is the icon is missing in the menu: Menu > Desktop > Screensaver
to fix that,
open: /usr/share/applications/xscreensaver-properties.desktop in Geany
and change the line:
Code:
Icon=xscreensaver

to
Code:
Icon=xscreensaver.xpm

Then open a terminal/console and run:
Code:
fixmenus

finally restart JWM: Menu > Shutdown > Restart JWM

If you would like it to be started automatically at each boot-up,
put the following in a script (call it whatever you like) and put the script in: /root/Startup
Code:
#!/bin/sh
xscreensaver -no-splash &

Make sure the script is executable,
Right Click on it and select: Permissions > Yes

xscreensaver 5.07 is missing alot of screensavers. I got a couple of them out of PuppyBasicScreensaver02, but there are still alot of them missing. I am not sure why that is though. version 5.11 has them all. other then that there isn't any real reason its just that the full current version would be nice.
