xscreensaver and Motif...
As the maintainer of xscreensaver, I have a few questions for users
and potential users.
When xscreensaver is compiled with Motif, it has a few additional
o It can be set to do locking, either through explicit direction by
xscreensaver-command, or automatically after a certain time period
(which can be different than the saver timeout).
o It can run in 'demo mode', via xscreensaver-command, which displays
a dialog box containing all configured saver programs and allows the
user to select a mode and run it.
I have not yet been able to get this functionality to work with
Lesstif, but thanks to CheapBytes, I now have the real thing and can
compile with Motif support, so that the above functionality works.
So, the question: Would anyone like to see packages compiled with
Motif for the extra functionality? If so, would you like to see the
Motif package replace or supplement the non-Motif version? Or does no
one actually use xscreensaver, and I should just go stuff off and
leave y'all alone? :)
