How to change the pics in matrixview screensaver

I love the matrix view screensaver, but i can only look at Neo for so long before I wanna change the pics, and Jons_Collasius on UbuntuForums is the person with the solution.

He/She/It/Other says that you need to edit /usr/share/applications/screensavers/matrixview.desktop (I needed to sudo) so that it looks like this:

[Desktop Entry]
Encoding=UTF-8
Name=MatrixView
Comment=Assimilation of Matrix GL by Alex Zolotov (http://knoppix.ru/matrixgl.shtml) Ported to Linux by Tugrul Galatali – .
TryExec=matrixview
Exec=matrixview -r –image /path/to/your/pictures
StartupNotify=false
Terminal=false
Type=Application
Categories=Screensaver

I used a folder in my Dropbox folder for this so that i can have all of my boxen show the same awesome pics.
