Description:

Keuphoria is a KDE3 port of Terence M. Welsh's Euphoria screensaver.

See the site of the author: http://perso.club-internet.fr/hftom/screensavers/index.html

I have just made an RPM for Mandrake 9.0 available on my homepage : http://membres.lycos.fr/billery/

Hope you will enjoy it.

* 10 oct. : I have replaced my rpm by Texstar's one (Mandrake users, you probably know that Texstar is our very very good friend).

Seemed to install ok, but now I don't have ANY screensavers listed in the control panel/look&feel/screensavers item!

I verified that I have the .desktop files in both the
/usr/share/applnk/System/ScreenSavers
and the /usr/share/applnk-mdk/.hidden/ScreenSavers
locations. I even did a rpm -e keuphoria, but to no avail. All my screensavers are gone.

How do I get them back??

The fix I outlined above seemed to work for a while, but Mandrake removed the *.desktop file on its own during some maintenance operation. However I see that the ScreenSaver *.destop files are also present in /usr/share/applnk/System/ScreenSavers
So I will try copying it to both locations to see if it 'sticks'. Surely someone should know how to do this properly on Mandrake?

The problem with kcontrol is that Mandrake uses its own menu system. It doesn't matter where you put the *.desktop file, if you update that menu it will be gone. And if you install a package that contains its own menu entry, the menu is updated. Use menudrake to create an appropriate menu entry, and it will work fine.

(Similar problem exists if you install Mosfet's Liquid from source, the kliquid.desktop menu item will disappear if you update the menu.)

Kormac is right, the .desktop file has to be placed in
/usr/share/applnk/System/ScreenSavers
rather than in
/usr/share/applnk-mdk/.hidden/ScreenSavers

The .prm packager should fix the issue.

Thanks for the great kss!

Please forgive me, if the RPM is not as good as it should be.

Maybe my knowledge of Mdk, specially 9.0 is not deep enough, so I apologize.

The maker of the RPM forgot to include a necessary *.desktop file to get it to show up in the Control Centre. This is how you do it:
Open KWrite (or favourite editor) and save the following in /usr/share/applnk-mdk/.hidden/ScreenSavers/
as KEuphoria.desktop

[Desktop Entry]
Name=KEuphoria (GL)
Comment=Euphoria (GL)
Exec=keuphoria
Terminal=false
Icon=kscreensaver.png

Encoding=UTF-8
Actions=Setup;InWindow;Root
[Desktop Action Setup]
Exec=keuphoria -setup
Name=Setup...
Icon=kscreensaver
[Desktop Action InWindow]
Exec=keuphoria -window-id %w
Name=Display in specified window
NoDisplay=true
[Desktop Action Root]
Exec=keuphoria -root
Name=Display in root window
NoDisplay=true
Type=Application
Name[en_GB]= KEuphoria (GL)
Name[en]=KEuphoria (GL)
Name[no]=KEuphoria (GL)
Name[nb]=KEuphoria (GL)
Name[nn]=KEuphoria (GL)
Name[no@nynorsk]=KEuphoria (GL)
Name[no_NY]=KEuphoria (GL)

You may of course also just open one of the *.desktop files in that dir and change the necessary details as I did.

the rpm has the keuphoria.desktop file.
Look at this:

[root@pc root]# rpm -q --list -p 3379-keuphoria-0.1.1-mdk.i586.rpm
/usr/bin/keuphoria
/usr/share/applnk-mdk/.hidden/ScreenSavers/keuphoria.desktop

Still, although files seem to be placed in the right location according to MDK9.0 filesystem layout, kcontrol wouldn't show keuphoria in the screensavers list.

I can have it running by hand, but kcontrol wouldn't display it.
Any idea?
Anyhow, it's gorgeous
