    I have ZorinOS 5.1 installed on one of my PC's. I do not fully understand how to properly uninstall and install screensavers.

    I uninstalled "gnome-screensaver" and installed "xscreensaver".

    When I open xscreensaver, many of the screensavers are shown as not being installed.

    What do I install and/or uninstall to get the full package of screensavers for xscreensaver?

    Thanks in Advance.

    Thanks.

    This is what worked for me.

    1. Remove gnome-screensaver. (Already Done)
    2. Install xscreensaver. (Already Done)
    3. Install xscreensaver-gl-extra
    4. Install xscreensaver-data-extra
    5. Add xscreensaver to the Startup Applications (System->Preferences->Startup Applications)

    Startup Application:
    Name: Xscreensaver
    Command: xscreensaver -nosplash
