I got it to work in the sense that I have no error messages and I can see it on the screen. However, it is going extremely slow as in 1 replot every 5-10 seconds. It doesn't do this in windows. I have a NVIDIA Geoforce 256 graphics board but haven't installed the nvidia drivers (still working off the installed kernel). Is this why, do you think?

That's the answer.. The regular XFree's version of the nvidia driver (nv) is not accelerated, so it is using software mode to draw all those 3d stuffs. Once I tried playing tuxracer on a friend's computer with the same video card without nvidia's version of the driver and I get seconds per frame instead of frames per second. So install the nvidia driver asap.. your computer will thank you :)

Ok guys I tried this and is not Auto starting for me when i go into X.

It runs normaly whenever I start it myself but I would like it to start when X does.

Even the man pages for this don't help. I have got be be doing something thats just small and stupid.

Maybe if someone running this in Mandrake 9.0 can just post their autostart file I can figure out what the heck I'm doing wrong.

To get xscreensaver startup in kde, follow the instructions on the first page of the thread except add the

xscreensaver-command -activate

command to the script.....here's mine (xsaver.sh);

# !/bin/sh

xscreensaver -nosplash &

(sleep :10 xscreensaver-command -activate) &

Finally got xmatrix running in xscreensaver. I ended up downloading the latest xscreensaver and extracting the xmatrix files to the correct locations. Basically I just added xmatrix to the existing xscreensaver running on my computer. I did try compiling the latest but it would crap on make with errors having to do with "duplicate message definitions"...
