    At first (when i try with the other 0.2 version), i only had Gnome, and then installed KDE to see if with it i could get it worked..the information i passed you is using KDE (i haven’t tested the new version with Gnome, because i thought that will happen the same..)..maybe killing some processes that are running may solve the issue?..well, you are the one who knows about this, so i will wait for further instructions =P..many thanks for helping me try to get it worked!, cheers!

    yep, the screensaver comes on top of all other windows, that is the problem that i have..here is the info that sends xwininfo under Gnome (where i just tried xwinwrap again and happens the same)..

    Window id: 0x180001d “x-nautilus-desktop”

    i don’t know if it is other “issue that i’am having” but, once i run the command in a terminal, as it goes on top of all the windows, i can’t do anything and see anything (only the screensaver being played)..and if i get to close the terminal, the screensaver goes away too..

    well, thank you..but, i extracted and didn’t know what to do (sorry, i’m new to linux)..then i searched for files named xwinwrap and replaced them with the new one (one in /usr/bin/). Now, i tried the command in a terminal and says “bash: /usr/bin/ no se puede ejecutar el archivo binario” (in english it would be something like “it is impossible to run the binary file”)..and when i double click in it nothing happens..many thanks for your interest in helping me, i really appreciate it..cheers!..

    Thank you for your work, but it still doesn’t work (i tested it in both, gnome and kde)..my window id (when i put xwinwinfo in gnome) still says 0x180001d “x-nautilus-desktop”..and about the -debug option, when i run the command, i can’t do or see anything, because the screensaver is on top of everything, so i have to get to close the terminal without being able to see it, so i can not tell you what is the output =S =(..maybe there is a command that sends me the output to a text file? i don’t know XD

    Well, now i thought that if i run the command without the -fs, i could get and see the debug output…what surprise me is that then, the screensaver doesn’t goes to the top of all if it isn’t full screen (now i have it running at the baskground of all my appz, but only in a short piece of my desktop)..the output is
    “Start finding desktop window
    Found Window:180001D
    Stop finding desktop window
    Using Window: 180001D
    Desktop window:180001D, Root window:8B
    Created Window:3400001”

    But if i use the -fs option it still doesn’t work =S..

    The command i use is xwinwrap -ov — /usr/lib/xscreensaver/glmatrix -root -window- WID (or with the -fs after -ov)

    Bingo! now i tried the -g option, and put it 1650×1050+0+0 and works at the background of all! i don’t get why it doesn’t work with the -fs option but well, many thankss!!

    Now, i am trying the same in KDE, and here, it doesn’t work, no matter if i run the command without any -fs or -g option..the debug option output says:

    Start finding desktop window
    Found Window:1400045
    Stop finding desktop window
    Using Window:1400045
    Desktop window: 1400045, Root Window:8B
    Created Window: 2C00001

    sorry for my spam, but now i notice that when i put the option (in Gnome, where it sometimes works) -g 1680×1050+0+0 it doesn’t work (like when i put the option -fs) but when i put the option -g 1670×1050+0+0 or any number that IS NOT 1680 works perfect! (now im using 1681×1050+0+0 and works perfect..)..i’m very happy that you could help me make it work, many thanks!..and if you are able (whenever you want and can) to help me get it work in KDE i would appreciate it too!

    i tried again and it doesn’t work, it goes on top of everything with the option -fs or the option -g 1680×1050+0+0 (1680×1050 is my resolution)..the debug output (i pressed ctrl+c how you said) is:

    Start finding desktop window
    Stop finding desktop window
    Using Window:8B
    Desktop window:8B, Root window:8B
    Created Window:3000001

    When i put xwininfo -all sends me a lotttttttt of data, so i think will be better to make a txt file and upload it and give you the link..

    I also have the same issue. Running Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty with GNOME. I’ve tried every command configuration I can think of, but the screensaver is always in the foreground, never the background.

    Disregard this, I’ve solved the problem by using xmatrix instead of glmatrix. Xmatrix doesn’t come standard with Jaunty (at least it didn’t for me), if anyone else is having this problem just open a terminal and

    sudo aptitude install xscreensaver-data-extra

    Then use xwinwrap as you normally would.

    I am, however, having another problem: Windows work fine with xmatrix until I minimize them all, and then I can’t see them again, even if I maximize them. I have no idea what to do.
