    When I went to carry out the second command after requesting Y/N it went into abort. So the screensavers were not added. Can you help.

    I have installed all the packages you suggest in my linuxmint (13 – Maya) installation but the “Pictures Folder” option is not available. Can you tell me which package it should be in or where I might get it?
    Thanks.

    I have installed the XScreensaver in Linux Mint Maya but each time I start up it is not working. When I go to the screensaver it says the XScreensaver daemon doesn’t seem to be running on display “:O”. Launch it now? when I do that it runs perfectly until I shutdown, when I restart it tells me the same thing. What do I need to do?
