This command for the Fedora versions from 22:
dnf install xscreensaver-base xscreensaver-extras xscreensaver-extras-base xscreensaver-gl-base xscreensaver-gl-extras

And you are done!
If you open the screen now, you will see this.

I found the code for installing the screensavers here.
(Remember, you can always do the cliccie for a larger piccie )
