Hello all.

I am trying to install xscreensaver on Point Linux 64 bits, but when I writing on terminal:

Code: Select all
sudo aptitude install xscreensaver
the output says

Code: Select all
Se instalarán los siguiente paquetes NUEVOS:     
0 paquetes actualizados, 1 nuevos instalados, 0 para eliminar y 0 sin actualizar.
Necesito descargar 872 kB de ficheros. Después de desempaquetar se usarán 2 406 kB.
No se satisfacen las dependencias de los siguientes paquetes:
 pointlinux-mate-core : Entra en conflicto: xscreensaver pero se va a instalar 5.15-3.
Las acciones siguientes resolverán estas dependencias

     Eliminar los paquetes siguientes:
1)     pointlinux-mate-core           
2)     pointlinux-mate-desktop       

¿Acepta esta solución? [Y/n/q/?]q
Abandonando todos los esfuerzos por resolver estas dependencias

That is, I need to remove the packages pointlinux-mate-core and pointlinux-mate-deskt

But, when I reviewed the dependencies of pointlinux-mate-desktop and pointlinux-mate-core there are a lot.

Do you know if there is another way to install xscreensaver??

Thanks a lot.

Pd. I'm :sorry: by my english, but I'm a newbie on this too.

but there is screensaver in the system. look at preferences. of course the number of screens is very limited but as a matter of fact - not needed.
going back to your question, I'm afraid there is no way. it's seems to be very serious dependency problem with mate,

here you can find details on the application. and it needs some gnome libraries. probable it causes problems.
