    Does anyone know of any cool looking screen savers? I went through the ones listed on apples website, but the only good ones were payware, it'd be nice if I could find some good ones for free. So if anyone knows of any, post them here for me and others to use. Thanks.

    A lot of people on this forum use Fliqlo (myself included).

    Those two given above are two of my top three.

    Guess this only leaves me this one to recommend.

    Polar Clock which also has a widget version

    Alright!! I just got back to my desktop now, and tried each of these and they are pretty cool, however, I couldn't get Fliqlo to work. I downloaded the Mac version, and when I double clicked on the .saver file from the disk image, it opens the system preferences (not screen saver part) but that's it. I can't find it anywhere in the screen saver preferences. The readme file was all chinese characters so I couldn't even read that to see what I was doing wrong. Any advice? BTW I'm currently using the polar clock as my desktop using wallsaver. Wallsaver lets you use your current screen saver as your desktop background. It's extremely cool.

    Does anyone know why Fliqlo wouln't be working? As I stated earlier, I downloaded the file, the disk image mounts, and when I double click on the .screen file all it does is open system preferences, and the screen saver is not actually there. Any help is appreciated.

    Can you check to see if the screensaver is in /Library/Screen Savers/FLIQLO.saver or /Users/username/Library/Screen Savers/FLIQLO.saver
