Re: xscreensaver and gnome-screensaver

Thanks for your replies
I tried running the migrate-xscreensaver-config.sh 
but this is complaining that there is no XSLT file which 
 is not really present when i searched using slocate database ( i have
already built it).

I read through the internet listings and could get convinced that it is
better to use gnome-screensaver rather than xscreensaver. The only thing
now i am wondering is how to import the xscreensaver screensaver .xml
files into the gnome-screensaver .desktop files so that
gnome-screensaver shows all the screensaver xscreensaver shows. Anybody
had this kind of issue before ?

The box said "Requires Windows 95, NT, or better", so I installed Linux.
