The xscreensaver package has now been split into:
- xscreensaver (core backend without hacks)
- xscreensaver-data (standard hacks)
- xscreensaver-data-extra (hacks not installed by default)
Similarly, the xscreensaver-gl package is split into:
- xscreensaver-gl (standard GL hacks)
- xscreensaver-gl-extra (GL hacks not installed by default)
This means that kscreensaver should depend on xscreensaver-data. It
doesn't need xscreensaver since it has its own backend. The -extra
packages are for hacks that we don't see fit included and enabled in a
default install, but interested users can install them on their own.
In addition to the hacks, the -data package includes standard .desktop
files for each hack. (Same goes for -data-extra, -gl and gl-extra).
These are in /usr/share/applications/screensavers.
In the future, we might move hacks beetween -data and -data-extra. Other
packages should therefore not depend on individual hacks, but look for
the installed .desktop files. (Same goes for -gl vs -gl-extra).
Tip: If you still need to ship a .desktop file for an executable from
another package, include the TryExec key in the .desktop file.
The hope is that this package split will make it easier for other
screensaver infrastructures (kscreensaver, gnome-screensaver, etc) to
enjoy the beautiful hacks from xscreensaver, and to avoid any conflicts
with the xscreensaver backend. Similarly, we want to please those who
prefer xscreensaver to the other backends by shipping a non-crippled
xscreensaver backend in its own package.
Thanks for your cooperation. Please tell if I can help you with more
