Bug Description

When i set a local directory with images on xscreensaver, these images are not used by gslideshow.

When i run xscreensaver-demo from the terminal, log show: "Can't locate LWP/ in @INC (@INC contains: /etc/perl /usr/local/lib/perl/5.14.2 /usr/local/share/perl/5.14.2 /usr/lib/perl5 /usr/share/perl5 /usr/lib/perl/5.14 /usr/share/perl/5.14 /usr/local/lib/site_perl .) at /usr/bin/xscreensaver-getimage-file line 53.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/bin/xscreensaver-getimage-file line 53."
I think this is related with the problem to load images.

I found the following bug for "archlinux":

Likely, it is the same bug, and is solved on xscreensaver 5.15-3.

There is a missing dependency on libwww-perl.
So workaround is to run:
sudo aptitude install libwww-perl

Thanks for the bug report. This was fixed in Debian with xscreensaver-5.15-3 and will be fixed in Ubuntu when that or a newer version is merged.
