All you need to do, or at least all I had to do, to get them all back is 
install the various xscreensaver packages, along with rss-glx.  Make sure you 
install the xscreensaver package because evidently it has what KDE needs to 
see "glmatrix" and others even though the files are installed with the 
kdescreensaver package.
