Xscreensaver 5.39 repository on the OBS

Not a backport, since there aren't any versions newer than 5.36 in Debian, Ubuntu, or any PPA I could find.

https://build.opensuse.org/package/show ... creensaver

Example install instructions for Stretch; first add the repo as root:
Code: Select all
echo 'deb http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/stevepassert:/xscreensaver/Debian_9.0/ /' > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/home:stevepassert:xscreensaver.list

Download the repo key as a normal user:

Code: Select all
rm -f Release.key && wget -nv https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:stevepassert:xscreensaver/Debian_9.0/Release.key -O Release.key

Install the repo key and update the sources as root:

Code: Select all
apt-key add - < Release.key
apt-get update

If you already have xscreensaver installed, just upgrade it as root:

Code: Select all
apt-get upgrade


Code: Select all
apt-get install xscreensaver

Users of Testing, 8.0, and 7.0 can replace the "9.0" in the instructions with their release to use them.
