I got XScreenSaver and removed gnome-screensaver by following these instructions: https://askubuntu.com/a/293014/364819

But now when I launch XScreenSaver I get this:

VERY OLD

So I went to the website and downloaded the xscreensaver-5.32.tar.gz from this page: http://www.jwz.org/xscreensaver/download.html

But now that I have unzipped it, I cannot find anything like an .sh file, or any type of executable file which I could use to install it. So that is really my question, how do I install it?

I am running Ubuntu 14.10.
