preview and screen blank

Asked by ranger_cole on 2008-05-29

 I went through all the install steps for eternity screensaver. It is listed as a screensaver with all the rest. When I choose it the preview pane is black and when you click preview it is also black. I am using a Dell optiplex 755 with an ati card. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I am a newbie to Linux. I am using Ubuntu 8.04.
