    Is there a simple way to include html pages or <img>s from there
    into screensavers?

    I mean - everything is so easy - just choose your screensaver...
    at least with win... I haven't found that feature on my Fedora Core yet.
    Is there any tool or something to configure the screensaver a little bit
    more personal ... with html?

    Something like a 'screensaver - update' - like the win - feature
    to set up an interactive desktop.

    In theory one could write a screensaver that used HTML as a data source. I'm
    not aware of any that exist at present.

    Are you aware that this is an HTML group and not a Linux one?

    In any case, in Fedora Core, there are quite a few screen savers. I use
    KDE. In KDE, right-click on desktop->Configure Desktop->Screensaver.

    I really don't know what you are looking for, although admittedly I have
    never used Windows' "Active desktop" feature.

    Also, you might consider putting some more details in questions you ask in
    the future. Your first post made zero sense and had no context whatsoever.

    But that has nothing to do with screensavers... you mean a desktop background? I don't know about your particular window manager,
    but many include the command to make a window "always on bottom", i.e. below all other windows. Now launch a browser (e.g.
    konqueror), set it to full screen and always on bottom.... voila, active desktop. In theory, a tleast, I've never tried anything
    like that ;)

    You can use any image you like as a background, then under KDE
    choose one of the group of screensavers that are "Desktop Distortions."
    But, ho hum. Deco rules.

    In KDE right click on the desktop and choose "Configure Desktop".

    Yes, I will try that now - ... luckily I found now the screensaver -
    options.
    But I think about something like: I sit infront of the pc - doing
    something else meanwhile ... that is the clue of screensavers.
    And then the screensaver starts. I want to have now "www.pastebin.com"
    presented by the screensaver _and_ showing the top post on the right hand
    side of the window. So 'refresh' would be fine.
