Hello,

I feel so excited after reading this. New Xfce screensaver is released. Can't wait to try it.

Maybe MX Team is already packaging it.

Dearly.

Yes. But maybe it could be pushed in MX test repo.

Hello,

First xfce-screensaver beta has been released. Would be glad to test if MX test repo accepts to welcome it.

Thanks.

OK--I can rebuild it from the PPA sources, if it doesn't want xfce 4.13 or greater. looking at it now.

Unfortunately, it needs GTK 3 xfce4-4.13 libraries, so it will have to wait for the stable xfce4-4.14 to come out and for us to package it.
