Run screensavers from the Terminal

Ever wanted to feast your eyes on your favourite screensaver, but
going to preferences | Screensaver is too much trouble?
Any screensaver can be run from the terminal with the command
screen_blanker „full_path_to_screensaver“
Running just screen_blanker by itself runs the currently selected screensaver.
From here it is quite easy to write a few 2-line scripts that each run a different saver. run’em through xicon, give some fancy icons and hey presto! Instant access to your favourite eye candy.
