QMLSaver Nice digital Clock Screensaver

This Clock ScreenSaver is something that was asked about on the Ubuntu Forums, back in 2007. And it didn't seem to have a good solution, They used gltext.  One would think that desktop Linux would have an easy and simple Clock Screensaver solution.

Enter in, QMLSaver, it fits the bill. It works great on my netbook on the nightstand.

It seems to me that anyone that can use apt-get should be able to install this handy Digital Clock Screensaver. I'm just making note of it here on my blog, as this is the second time I've looked for such a utility, for my netbook. - What I really want is a screensaver that has the time, and temp.  I suppose that I could setup a desktop for that, but, that doesn't hit the mark for what I'd like.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:prodoomman/qmlsaver
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install libqt4-dev qmlsaver

Another alternative is the Noflipqlo screensaver It's a bit more complicated to install, but looks like it might do the trick really well also.
