xdg-screensaver reset, instead of something fancier which probably
didn't reactivate screensaver properly
* Add dependency on xdg-utils for xdg-screensaver command
(Closes: #513268)
2009-01-22 - Ari Pollak <>

brightside (1.4.0-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream release
- The original upstream website is no longer available,

* Update our patches slightly to match Fedora's

install into /usr/share/gconf/schemas instead of /etc/gconf/schemas.

2004-07-08 - Ari Pollak <>
