Reporting Bugs to Matrixgl

How to Report a Bug

Linux, BSD, and other UNIX's

Please follow these steps to report a bug:

  1. First, you'll need to download the latest code. Otherwise you may be reporting a bug that we have already fixed. To do that, go to our Git Page and click the Snapshot link of the top item in the Shortlog. Don't worry if you don't understand what this is, you'll be downloading a tar.gz of the latest code.
  2. Extract the package and then run the gen-bug-report script and follow the instructions
      $tar xzf [File Name].tar.gz
      $cd matrixgl
  3. There are two ways to submit a bug, either send an email to, or if you can, please submit it to the Bug Report Tracker, no login is required.
  4. Whichever method you use, please send us a very detailed description of the problem, and attach the file bug_report. Don't worry, it contains no personal information. Also, please send along the filename of the tar.gz (i.e ff4a93d87c1d1d26f0df69d0cd63447e7f361845.tar.gz). Just the name, not the file itself.

We greatly appreciate all bug reports, as it helps us to improve the quality of our screensaver. If you like, you can send along your name, and optionally your email, and we will add it to the contributors file as a token of our thanks.
