Description:

xplanetFX is a daemon for rendering high quality views of mother earth as wallpaper in real-time (sun, moon and clouds). It comes with a handy GTK interface but is fully usable under CLI.

xplanetFX depends on xplanet and imagemagick and is available as DEB, RPM (untested) and TAR.GZ. The GUI uses pygtk and cairo.

A couple of available templates embed the renderings in different scenes and are downloadable as separate packages which can be easily installed by drag&drop to the themes list in the GUI or since 2.0 directly online via the themepool inside the application.

Features like delayed autostart multi language (japanese, czech, dutch, english, spanish, italian, french, russian, greek and german by now) and a lot of customization make xplanetFX an easy-to-use interface for xplanet drawing the earth in high quality.

The base images of the templates are mostly licensed under creative commons from flickr.com and some free texture stuff from the www.

A lot more information, the users manual and the templates can be obtained under the web adress.

There is a signed repository for the deb package available, please read the infos in the blog under "installation".

Hey!

Good to hear that! But it sounds strange that you had to reload your desktop environment first; actually it was designed to handle downloads and background updates without any flaw - especially under GNOME for what it was built and tested for in the first place. (btw. feel free to stultify my weird sentece constructions ,)

Just to clarify my thoughts: are the regular background updates working now?

ich spreche nicht Deutsch!

The .deb program I downloaded and installed is in German. I couldn't find a way to change the language to English. Is there an English version? It looks awesome. I would very much like to try it.

Vielen Dank

my friend, I downloaded this and find how to use it in English. In the main window of application there is a "Werkzeuge" tab at the right corner. when you open that tab, you see the "Sprache" option at the bottom of the window. change it to "en" and use it in the lingua franca :)

Thanks, my friend, for your assistance. Following your advice I was able to change xplanetFX into English and am now able to use it.

You are one very helpful fellow!

Hey!

As sedaTurca says (thanks for the support!). But thanks for the bug report anyway, it is meant to always startup in english the first time - the default configuration was messed up.

Following sedaTurca's excellent advice I was able to change the language to English. I also just downloaded xplanetFX on my main Ubuntu desktop computer and installed it. It now defaults to English. Thanks for fixing that.

xplanetFX is one of the most incredible pieces of software I have ever seen! I am totally ecstatic with how awesome my Ubuntu desktop now looks. It goes really well with the Divinorum GTK Theme and the Royal Blue icon theme, by the way.

You are very talented and have obviously spent a lot of time working on this. Thanks for sharing your hard work with the rest of us!

Tausend Dank!

Brother, think that's the point where a kartoffel starts getting red around the cheeks *^^* Thank. You. Very. Much.

> Thanks for fixing that.

Bir sey degil!

> Thanks for sharing your hard work with the rest of us!

I'll try it in short words - that's my point of view on one of mankind's major topics and how it could really co-operate with any sensible or observable object in its reachable environment in a sustainable way. A more down-to-earth version is available here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u6XAPnuFjJc (btw. the related stuff of RSAnimate is quite mind-blowing, too)

Many thanks and may the force be with you .)
