It seems that the port xscreensaver-kde depends on the gnome version if 
it find certain gnome related files, or otherwise it depends on the 
xscreensaver version.

I would delete xscreensaver, install the gnome one, and then force a  
rebuild of xscreensaver-kde (to be on the safe side)


Incidently I have xscreensaver-gnome with KDE because I used to have 
gnome. Does anyone know which which is the better with just KDE?
