TuxSaver is a 3D KDE screensaver.
It requires OpenGL and KDE 3.x
Make sure you have installed the kdelibs and mesalibs (GL and GLU), including the development packages.

Send me an email If you would like to draw new object in ac3d, make/change stories or add sounds.

If you use mandrake 9.0,
you don't have to compile the source to install the screensaver.
You can just download the MANDRAKE9.0 RPM.
(URL=http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=4510)

To install type "urpmi ./tuxsaver-0.4-1mdk.i586.rpm" in the directory you have downloaded the screensaver. (You must do this as root -type 'su' in the console-)
