Does anyone know where I can download this thing, it was unfortunately deleted from Jaguar, and I don't like any of the screensaves that replaced it. Two of the Jaguar screensavers actually lock my old iMac DV up. If anyone knows where I can find the original "Desktop Icons" screensaver from 10.1 it would be great.......

Have you tried Flurry? It's gorgeous with the proper settings and a fast enough mac.

I always thought the desktop icons one was so windowzy.. I'm glad its gone.

Sorry man. :)

What the shao?

Hey! You're right! Jaguar ate up my copy of the .Saver folder that contained the Desktop Icons screensaver. What gives?! I had switched over to Flurry a while back, but thoroughly enjoyed my flying Aqua icons.

If anybody is running 10.1.x and could post a .SIT somewhere, that would be hot. I'd love to reclaim that yummy artifact from pre-Jaguar OS X.

Good eye, 3777.

:confused:

Hm... Apple must have changed something, it doesn't seem to work under 10.2, just turns the screen black (same with the preview) :(

i'm sorry that it does not work. i tried. something in 10.2 must have broken the screensaver (although i can't imagine what, and really, shouldn't apple try to code correctly, especially on small stuff like screensavers?). if apple released the sourcecode, i'm sure that someone with programming knowledge (read: not me) could hack it to work in about a half an hour. i'm not sure why they decided not to include it in 10.2.

THanks for posting it anyway, it was a nice screensaver, too bad they canned it.
