Status in “xscreensaver” package in Ubuntu: Fix Committed

Bug description:
Binary package hint: xscreensaver

Kubuntu Fiesty, installed xfce, and installed xscreensaver and xscreensaver-data (plus all recommended packages). When you open up the settings panel, every action results in a dialog box with the error "Directory does not exist: /usr/share/backgrounds". Creating the directory got rid of the error.
