I was wondering if there is an application that allows the computer to chose a screensaver at random from a specific list that you make. I know that you can make the computer choose any screensaver at random, but I want it to choose only the ones I specify at random. I have about 6 screensavers that I want it to choose at random.
List of 77 lines with the names of movies. For ease, let's say it's in a text file. What I want is a command line argument I can pass that'll read each line and pick one of those 77 lines at random, except I can't figure out how to do this. Is there a program I can just pipe the output of 'cat listofmovies.txt' to?
Is there a Linux program I can use to display random words from a list? By entering words in a spreadsheet and then sorting the list in alphabetical order, I made a list of new vocabulary words for myself to memorize, and wondered whether I could make random words from the list display on the screen daily. I know I could write a program to do that if I knew programming, but I don't.
I want to generate a temporary random list from a directory of files and then determine the size of an arbitrary block of files from this list (say 1-25 or 26-50) and add their names to a file along with some other info for each name. I can generate a random list with file sizes like this: ls -l | sort -R | cut -d " " -f 6 but i'm not sure how to add up the sizes of just a certain block of these files and at the same time save the file names.
I'm looking for a script that copies a random .jpg from a random folder in my ~/Pictures folder to my ~/temp folder with a standard filename. This file will then be displayed in Conky. I can fix the last part, but I cannot find a way to do the first part.
don't use gnome/KDE or XFCE, I use Ratpoison. Because of this, the normal state of my computer is to show my wallpaper which rotates often enough that I don't need or want a screensaver.How do I stop the screen from going black every ten minutes? This is also bad when I watch a movie.
I copied some xscreensavers into the screensavers folder which is in usr/applications/screensavers. Now when I go to my screensaver application, they don't show up at all. What should I do? I am running Ubuntu 10.10.
I've recently installed the package xscreensaver-gl-extra, and noticed not one of the screensavers on that package works - all I get is a blank screen on all of them. However, I remember those screensavers working under Jaunty on exactly the same hardware (didn't test them on Karmic).How can I make them work again?
just installed openSuse on my desktop. Ever since I've been having problems with screensavers. When I open screensaver preferences, I can click on and see previews of all of the 2D screensavers, but the 3D screensavers just give me a black screen as a previews (even when I ask for a fullscreen preview). how-to fix this situation so that I can run 3D screensavers?
I just noticed that my screensaver was not working in Fedora 14 x86_64 / Gnome. I searched in Yumex on "screensaver" and reinstalled all that were marked as installed, but no joy. Not only does the screensaver not come on (it is set to 30 minutes) but if I go into Preferences > Screensaver and click on one of the choices it does not display the selected screensaver in the preview window. That is, none of them display except Floating Feet and Floating Fedora Bubbles. What is going on is to discover where those two screensavers come from as opposed to the others. i.e., what packages are they from?
I'm running KDE, with 11.2 32-Bit. At first, my screen saver worked just fine, coming on after 130 min, being just long enough to watch a movie. Since changing the screen saver, but not the duration before activation my screen saver comes on every 20 min. I have tried changing and saving settings in YaST and going back to the original choice of screensaver, neither of which have worked.
I run a molecular biology lab and we like to run the "Molecule" GL screensaver in order to look cool (I know it doesn't actually save screens, and it wastes energy, but you know..). I'm about to install Opensuse 11.3 on all 24 of our laptops and I find that the number of GL screensavers installed as standard is greatly reduced from previous Opensuse releases. Any idea where I can get the "Molecule" and other screensavers?
I am running KDE and have the following relevant packages installed: kdeartwork4-screensaver xscreensaver xscreensaver-data xscreensaver-data-extra gnome-screensaver gnome-screensaver-extra This apparently gives me just 8 GL screensavers - there used to be a great many more?
I recently updated to OpenSUSE 11.3 with KDE 4.4.4 . I do not find the great series of screensavers which existed in previous versions. I look in sysemsettings, desktop, but there I find only two version of blank screen as screensaver and no way to install something else.
I just install rss-glx, - the really slick screensavers package, but there are no new screensavers being listed in the GNOME preferences panel in F13. How do I get these nice screensavers into the screensaver preferences?
When using the very nice opengl screensavers, rss-glx, etc. the screensavers are very choppy.I tried modifying my xorg.conf but still no go.Anyway to get the rss-glx screensavers to run at normal speed?I read online that Intel disable the hardware acceleration.This is a work laptop but I just wanted to see if I could get it going.
I have a Dell D620 and I can't use any screensavers. Rather, no screensavers work. Just for giggles, I booted a Kubuntu 11.04 CD, updated the sources.list, installed rss-glx and was able to use the rss-glx and other opengl screensavers. The reason I say opengl is because those are the ones that I use but no screensavers work.

All I want is for my bootloader to show "Ubuntu" & "Windows XP" which are the only 2 OS's I have installed (dual booting). At the moment it shows Windows XP, Ubuntu, Ubuntu recovery mode & like 2 more.. which are also Ubuntu & recovery mode. I've never selected the other Ubuntu ones, only the first one. So, how can I remove the ones I don't want to show on the list.
There is a problem with my source list (apparently) I'm running 11.04 if that helps.When I try to use apt-get install update for example, I get: "Malformed line 59 in source list etc/apt/sources.list"The same error occurs when trying to access synaptic package manager, it tells me there is a malformed line and the list of sources cannot be read.This error prevents me from apt-getting anything, updating and i suspect it is affecting the software center too.
How would I list 4 users ID numbered 10, 11, 12 and 13 from my users list and output them to a file busers where their names are numbered by ascending order? How would I accomplish that on a one line command?
