./x11/xscreensaver, Screen saver and locker for the X window system

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 5.45, Package name: xscreensaver-5.45, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

The xscreensaver program waits until the keyboard and mouse have been idle
for a period, and then runs a graphics demo chosen at random. It turns off
as soon as there is any mouse or keyboard activity.

The purpose of xscreensaver is to display pretty pictures on your screen
when it is not in use, in keeping with the philosophy that unattended
monitors should always be doing something interesting, just like they do
in the movies.

However, xscreensaver can also be used as a screen locker, to prevent
others from using your terminal while your are away.


Required to run:
[textproc/libxml2] [graphics/gle] [graphics/png] [graphics/jpeg] [fonts/Xft2] [x11/libXScrnSaver] [x11/libXpm] [x11/liboldXrandr]

Required to build:

Log message:
xscreensaver: fix packaging when option opengl is disabled

There was a lingering reference to sphereeversion in a place that was
causing sphereeversion.xml to be installed even when that screensaver
wasn't built.

Log message:
xscreensaver: fix PLISTs

Fix PLIST and PLIST.opengl to reflect additions from the previous
update that caused builds without the opengl option to fail to package.
(No bump to PKGREVISION, since builds with the default options were
unaffected.)
