openSuse 11.3 KDE4 BSOD Screensaver

I loved the BSOD screensaver, but since I installed 11.3 I cannot find it anywhere. The xscreensaver package, data and data-extra are all installed, but I still can’t find them. Turns out the opensuse’s KDE 4 build is missing the xscreensaver bridge…. (Note im using 64Bit, so change any package/path name as you see fit)

  1. Install xscreensaver, xscreensaver-data and xscreensaver-data-extra
  2. cd /tmp
  3. wget
  4. rpmbuild –rebuild kdeartwork4-4.4.4-1.4.src.rpm
  5. rpm -Uvh –force /usr/src/packages/RPMS/x86_64/kdeartwork4-screensaver-4.4.4-1.4.x86_64.rpm

That should do it!
