Will there a release for Kubuntu 12.04 with KDE 4.8.2?

or is there a way to modify the existing Package to get it work?

I'm just one step before making this screensaver work properly in Kubuntu 10.04.2 x64.

1. Get the right deb package from download page.

2. Install kdelibs5 and libglut3 packages.

3. Just like MoonBlossom said,

sudo cp /usr/share/applnk/System/ScreenSavers/kmatrix3d.desktop /usr/share/kde4/services/ScreenSavers/kmatrix3d.desktop

4. Edit the file with:

kdesudo kate /usr/share/kde4/services/ScreenSavers/kmatrix3d.desktop

Replace all its content with this:

Quote:
[Desktop Entry]
Exec=kmatrix3d.kss
Icon=preferences-desktop-screensaver
Type=Service
X-KDE-ServiceTypes=ScreenSaver
Actions=Setup;InWindow;Root;
X-KDE-Category=OpenGL Screen Savers
X-KDE-Type=OpenGL
Name=KMatrix3D (GL)

[Desktop Action Setup]
Exec=kmatrix3d.kss -setup
Name=Setup...
Icon=preferences-desktop-screensaver

[Desktop Action InWindow]
Exec=kmatrix3d.kss -window-id %w
Name=Display in Specified Window
NoDisplay=true

[Desktop Action Root]
Exec=kmatrix3d.kss -root
Name=Display in Root Window
NoDisplay=true
X-Ubuntu-Gettext-Domain=desktop_kdeartwork


And save it.

5. Go to screensaver properties. You'll see kmatrix3d in OpenGL group.

Settings and preview work fine, but when I leave my computer waiting for screensaver to start it shows only black screen. Any suggestions?

It's a shame that such a great screensaver is no longer maintained! :(
I've got my Matrix-styled desktop and it would suite me perfectly, but it seems like there's no way to make it work under Kubuntu 10.04.
It's a pity!
I miss that perfect thing!

Install the deb package from the download page. Then do:

sudo cp /usr/share/applnk/System/ScreenSavers/kmatrix3d.desktop /usr/share/kde4/services/ScreenSavers/kmatrix3d.desktop

Finally edit the file with:

kdesudo kate /usr/share/kde4/services/ScreenSavers/kmatrix3d.desktop

From this:

[Desktop Entry]
Encoding=UTF-8
Exec=kmatrix3d.kss
Icon=kscreensaver
Type=Application
Actions=Setup;InWindow;Root
X-KDE-Category=Miscellaneous
Name=KMatrix3D

To this:

[Desktop Entry]
Encoding=UTF-8
Exec=kmatrix3d.kss
Icon=kscreensaver
Type=Service
X-KDE-ServiceTypes=ScreenSaver
TryExec=xscreensaver
Actions=InWindow;Root;Setup;
X-KDE-Category=OpenGL Screen Savers
X-KDE-Type=OpenGL
Name=KMatrix3D

You'll find the screen saver in system settings under OpenGL

looks really great! but it has no chance on a multiscreen-system.. you just cut the sides on left and right - so this is not the best way to do.. calculating the draw-area on screen-resolution would be pretty better then this procedure.. please fix it - i want to used it very quickly!!! :P

Looks great, only problem is that on my system I run dual monitors 2x 1600x1200 for 3200x1200 total res.. it displays in the center of the two monitors (its configured with twinview, so its one big desktop) and about 1/3 of the far right and far left are black

Does it works on Kubuntu Feisty Fawn 7.04?
Because on your website I only see Edgy or AMD packages.

Most packages that work on Edgy will also work on Feisty. I can confirm this one in particular does.
