Since upgrading to 10.8.2 Screen svaer no longer recognize the iphoto folder as a valid folder and so I can no longer use my photos as a screen saver.  Does anyone know how to fix this ?


Mac Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    As is often the case, I can specd hours on a problem, finally a post a question and then almost immediately find my problem resolved.  I don't why but now when I select "source" for the screen saver I have an extra option of "Photo library" which had disappeared while I was having this problem.  Only I don't know how or why this has resolved itself.

    Last time I used my computer was early Dec. and my screensaver was correctly using my iPhoto library folder. Now, it has reverted to a default folder and I don't have the option for iPhoto. (I still have the option for iPhoto under the desktop tab).  I've tried some of the suggestions from Aug/Sept regarding the upgrade to ML, but they didn't work; probably because this just happened in Dec.  If @GeoffreyDyson or others know how to fix this, I would greatly appreciate tips.

    Sorry but I don't really know what caused the iPhoto Folder to become available again.  Maybe simply following apermissions repair
