	One of the problems using gnome-screensaver is the need to re-acquire
the screensavers after an update. One of the main reasons I deleted it
and installed the Xscreensaver-base package.

	Any way, you accomplish your task by using a script that comes with
your gnome-screensaver package:
/usr/libexec/gnome-screensaver/migrate-xscreensaver-config.sh

	The best way I found to use it is to cd to the directory that holds
your screensaver themes:
cd /usr/share/gnome-screensaver/themes
	then run the script pointing it at the folder containing your
xscreensaver*.xml files. so as one line it looks like:

/usr/libexec/gnome-screensaver/migrate-xscreensaver-config.sh
/usr/share/xscreensaver/config/*.xml

That should do it. Just run the screensaver preferences to see all of
the savers.  Be sure also that you have installed the xscreensaver packages.
