Getting tired of those space pictures from Mark Shuttleworth when your screensaver starts in Ubuntu. Long ago, the screensaver preference pane was different and functional although ugly. It's now much prettier, but most of the options are gone.

Ofcourse, they can still be changed by editing a simple text file. In this case, just do the following;

echo "imageDirectory: " > .xscreensaver


where is the directory containing your pictures the screensaver should use.
