xscreensaver doesn't show rss-glx screensavers to select

Hi, I just installed rss-glx but the contained screensavers aren't shown in the selection dialog of xscreensaver. I'm running gnome 3.2 from unstable/experimental. How can I solve this issue? Yesterday, I just reinstalled my system, so it's up to date.

I've attached a screenshot and the screensaver I want to use is MatrixView.

I'm using xscreensaver because I don't know how to setup anything else than a blank screen in gnome-screensaver.

    When reviewing your issue on google I noticed that the ubuntu documentation (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/rss-glx) is stating to run a perl program to load the rss-glx libraries into xscreensaver, have you completed that step?

    Hahaha the Moebius band...

    One interesting thing indeed! Did you know that it cannot be expressed mathematically in 3 dimensions? :D

    Sorry for the offtopic!
