well, in my system, screen savers appear in the Control Center list if they
have a .desktop file here:
then the screen savers are in /opt/kde/bin
for example, I use Kclock as a screen saver, and I would like that ktorrent
is launched with it
this is the file: /opt/kde/share/applnk/System/ScreenSavers/KClock.desktop
[Desktop Action Setup]
[Desktop Action InWindow]
Exec=kclock.kss -window-id %w
Name=Display in Specified Window
[Desktop Action Root]
Name=Display in Root Window
