Howto install eternity on kubuntu 10.10

Asked by Marc on 2011-01-09

Hi,

I've seen this screensaver on my college's PC, (it is amazing) and have been googling around on where to find it.
Can you tell me where to find the SW and can it be used on (k)ubuntu 10.10 ?
Via Google, I only find it for older ubuntu versions.

It is a pitty that it is not in the normal repositories

Bear with me on this, but it is available in the Ubuntu Satanic Edition repositories.

To add the repo:

Download the key:
wget -q http://ubuntusatanic.org/ubuntu-se-key.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add -

Add the folowing to your /etc/apt/sources.list:
deb http://ubuntusatanic.org/hell maverick main

Install:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install eternal-ubuntu

Or you can get the debs from here:
http://ubuntusatanic.org/hell/pool/main/e/eternity-screensaver/eternity-screensaver_0.4_i386.deb
http://ubuntusatanic.org/hell/pool/main/e/eternal-ubuntu/eternal-ubuntu_0.4_i386.deb

TBH I haven't tested it on KDE for a long time. Hopefully it still works.

Thanks, it works just fine in KDE
