In the package manager look for kde-screensaver should be a set in there.

I am a huge fan of xscreensaver (available in the Ubuntu repositories, for 64 bit as well). It's like the old Ubuntu screensaver before they dumbded it down. It comes with dozens of screensavers and every screensaver has many interesting options to make it do all kinds of interesting stuff. I use this trick but instead of displaying the Linux kernel source code, I run it on my own projects directory, displaying the source code of various applications I wrote.
