Description Ryan Hendrickson 2006-10-01 20:19:06 UTC
I suspect this is an upstream bug, but just in case...

Running gnome-screensaver with Electric Sheep selected just blanks the screen, dumps this message to console:

gnome-screensaver-WARNING **: Could not execute command for theme: electricsheep --root 1

I have installed the following packages:
gnome-extra/gnome-screensaver-2.14.2
x11-misc/electricsheep-2.6.7-r1
(also tried x11-misc/electricsheep-2.6.8)

And yes, I made an electricsheep.desktop file in /usr/share/gnome-screensaver/themes/ with the migrate-xscreensaver-config.sh script.

I'm currently blocked by bug #227239
Comment 2 Gilles Dartiguelongue gentoo-dev 2009-03-22 15:18:20 UTC
please call us back when electricsheep gets back some maintenance.
Comment 3 Stealth- 2010-05-29 07:18:56 UTC
Can we readdress this bug? This problem is still existent. Electric sheep runs perfect on standalone (Eg: From command line) and from xscreensaver, however gnome-screensaver simply shows a black screen. Is this something I should be complaining to electric sheep developers about instead?
Comment 4 Gilles Dartiguelongue gentoo-dev 2013-01-12 10:59:04 UTC
Recent gnome-screensaver do not play any kind of animation so this can be definitively close now. Thanks for reporting.
