5 Super! The best screensaver to Mint. There are extra packages for Xscreensaver if you like to expand your collection.

5 I have used xscreensaver for years; always liked it. Mint screensaver will work if you install xscreensaver, start the daemon by starting screensaver-demo. Then you can make the settings for a particular screensaver, like gl-slideshow, selecting an appropriate file directory, and so on. Then test it. Obviously, it is simpler to just use Xscreensaver itself and turn of Mint's version; just my opinion.

5 Forgive them, for they know not what they say. Xscreensaver is the best screensaver as of 2016 in any Linux distro. Period.

1 I disable it. Power manager is enough. Don't need multiple programs fighting to do the same thing.

5 For anyone concerned with the security of xscreensaver compared to gnome-screensaver for example, I recommend you read the Xscreensaver FAQ page at jwz.org

1 Breaks the Lock Screen command and some Power Manager functionality on Mint 17 XFCE, and interrupts full-screen applications without keyboard & mouse input (doesn't detect other inputs). If you want to stare at pretty patterns or you're simple enough to be amused by a bouncing 3D cow, this is for you. If you actually want to lock your screen to keep your contacts' confidential emails safe while taking a piss, use gnome-screensaver instead.

3 No menu item: once installed the only way to run it seems to be to call it from a terminal

3 Tons of screensavers, but most are basic and boring. But there are a few really good ones in there.

5 Lindo, liviano y muy configurable. No consume casi recursos y tiene un gran abanico de salvapantallas :)

4 Xscreensaver is the way to go. Animations are awesome, and lots of easy configuration options. Some of the screensavers could, however, use a bit of graphical improvement.
