Fedora 28 Cinnamon Desktop Screensaver

asked 2018-08-21 14:17:29 -0500


I just recently installed Fedora 28 Cinnamon Desktop on VMWare 14 and I'm liking the interface a lot (coming from Centos7 as my daily driver in vmware 14, host Win7) and have a question on the screensaver, as it seems I just have one (a digital clock) and the background remains static which kinda defeats the point as a screensaver (the time display does move, but not the background [which is the default install wallpaper])

Does anyone know how to add more screensavers or configure this one to not have a background (I don't have an option like that in screensaver->settings)
