@sirspudd Yes, it installs now, but there are a few problems not seen before...

  1. Adjusting settings causes the xscreensaver process to freeze.
  2. In the Helios screensaver, the "Helion surfaces" render as a proper sized silhouette against what looks like a larger scale of what the helion surfaces should be. (It should look like a soap bubble; instead it looks like a water color paint splotch.) This indicates a rendering calculation may be off.

I'm running:

gcc 12.2.1-2
xorg-server 21.1.8-0

I'm unsure about the state of other dependencies or whether this is an upstream problem. But, I know that the latest RSS works on Windows 10.

Thanks for this awesome package, btw & fwiw.

Build failed when pkg-config couldn't find "Wand.pc" from ImageMagick-6. Fixed with:

export PKG_CONFIG_PATH='/usr/lib/imagemagick6/pkgconfig'

@JesseSteele: should be fixed now

It worked about six months ago, but not now. Getting this output with error at the very end:

==> Retrieving sources...

Thank you, moved the last release into a git repo and fixed it there with the associated header inclusion

was able to get a clean build by adding the missing include to impSurface.h:

$ diff ./src/rss-glx_0.9.1/src/Implicit/impSurface.h.orig ./src/rss-glx_0.9.1/src/Implicit/impSurface.h
> #include <cstddef>
