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? - Feb 13 2011
