Editing a screensaver (SOLVED)

Postby heiowge » Tue Oct 02, 2012 1:10 pm

I'm using Mint 13 Cinnamon atm. I've installed screensavers. One of the screensavers I've activated is Jigsaw. It's one of the standard Gnome ones.

I like the screensaver, except for one thing. The damn image it jigsaws doesn't seem to change from what appears to be some crappy testcard.

I'd love to change that. Is there a way to edit these screensavers? Is it easy to do? Can you tell me how please?

The screensavers usually have preferences where you can change the image - have another look through the settings, I can't give exact instructions as it's been a long time since I've used any kind of gnome.

Found it. I wasn't expecting it to be in a global settings tab, rather than a tab for individual screensaver: jigsaw.

Cheers! :D
