KFlocks is an openGL screen saver for KDE.

This is a KDE port, rewrite & rearrangement of original FLOCKS XScreenSaver.

This is an OPENGL screensaver. It depends by libGL & libGLU libraries. These libraries are normally installed into all linux distros.

Please note that the performance of the OpenGL screensavers depends by your graphic card strength and its correct installation (please configure the right Xorg driver for your card).

Using Kubuntu 6.10 Edgy

All seems to compile properly.

./configure
make
sudo make install

But I cannot find it under the heading of open(gl) in the screensaver setup.

Any suggestions?

thanks

Let me understand better: You cannot found the "KBIOF" voice into your OpenGL ScreenSavers menu of screensaver setting utils?

For this, check if kbiof.desktop is present into your <kde-dir>/share/applnk/System/ScreenSavers/kbiof.desktop

Very nice!

Oh, and if you add
usleep(20000);
in kflocks.cpp line 321, you'll get a nicer cpu usage.

Ideally, you should make the usleep time configurable (say from 20000 [50fps] to 100000 [10fps])

Well done.
