Can I go back to the original Xscreensaver login that doesn’t shout: “Hey, i’m using qubes over here!”. I liked the flame of the old screensaver login.
It’s changes always break someone’s workflow / preferences (reated comic xkcd: Workflow).
After all the work that went in to that change? I’m hurt.
I completely understand your motive - also, for anyone who doesn’t want
to shout “I’m using Qubes” at all.
You can remove the Qubes version -
sudo dnf remove xscreensaver-base should do.
Install the fedora versions: the latest is 5.45-1.fc32 - you can
check this from
qubes-dom0-update --showduplicates --action=list xscreensaver-base
You install a specific version like this:
(dnf also has the handy
downgrade action - I dare say you could use
qubes-dom0-update --action=downgrade xscreensaver-base but this
will be less specific, and may not do what you want.)
ahhh, it’s nice to be able to cozy up to the fire again. Now we need to make the flames get bigger when I hold the spacebar.
You will need to stop dom0 updates replacing the Fedora xscreensaver.
You can do this by editing /etc/yum.conf and adding a line like this:
I think that should block updates.
(You will get warnings that your xscreensaver is out of date, but that
is the price you pay for being cozy)
I tried adding this file (because it wasn’t there) and the fire keeps getting extinguished.
Try the same line in
That did it.
