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".

Thank you very much! Resources are only about zero while sleeping. The render cycle takes heavy load for some time. But since this happens only every half an hour it's okay with me.

update:i get clouds disabling the h/q clouds, does it tell you something? but toggling the other 2 h/q buttons doesn't do nothing and still no luck with the star background not showing (also other themes show with black background, only settings on earth size change)

Hey musashisakai,

good to hear you got it fixed. It sounds a bit odd that the deb didn't install its dependencies... anyway, thanks for the compliments!

but...I am using KDE and it doesn't seem to work. Do you have a plasma plugin to go along with it or something? I see "updating background for KDE environment" in the terminal output but I just see my default wallpaper :( I have even tried killing plasma-desktop to no avail. is there any hope?

never mind, got it. Simply save the final product to a file and have plasma use that file as the background. It will auto update.

cool!

Hey nerdykid,

thank you very much! Yeh KDE > 4.3 is a problem because they stripped dcop which was accountable for changing the wallpaper via command line. There's no other comparable feature by now so you have to deal with workarounds :/ sorry for that.

there is something I am doing wrong that has either corrupted the xplanet file or the desktop background app is blocking the proper refresh.

I prefer to work with the Terminal,,can someone help me with the commands to help uninstall this and the re- install

or maybe I am missing something, right now..... xplanet does the following

1) only shows Australia
2) drops the location I chose
3) stuck in the old clock times I set yesterday, should this be current?
4) when I re-size to fit the screen..it never the less ..remains the same size

So in my books this program has gotten completely corrupted....so HELP!!

using the latest..2.0.16
Desktop is Ubuntu 10.10.03..completely up to date.


To clarify some misunderstandings I had about this.
1) the earth does not "rotate" in real time
2) it only updates the clouds
3) earth location remains static


Now the interesting thing is when I move the location cursor , say to Benompan , Belize.. the x/ cross-hair lights up green, whereas in my location , Vancouver, it lights up dull red..almost like its saying "sorry can't get that map..


Now I was finally able to get it to rotate to this side of the world , but I am too far south....somehow its not following my choice of city, long or lat.. and the time clock remains static.. don't know why?

So to update,
1) was able to change location but still not home
2) cloud update is fine
3) clock time doesn't update
4) when choosing a city or location... 20 minutes later..its "dropped" and I have to go back in and re choose again.


Any ideas what is happening?

It seems you have the date/time setting enabled? This one shows a specific date, not the actual one. Disable it to display your local time.

The color of the cursor only shows that a very northern or southern setting doesn't look that nice because you'll get a lot of the poles. Especially the clouds are looking a bit odd there since no weather satellite is able to take a look. If you put it to random it hits near the equator more often, the color just underlines it optically.

If you set a city to display fixed the earth cannot rotate ,) To see the earth rotating enable the "follow the suns orbit" and set an angle to the sun with the fader.

So I don't really see through your problems, it seems there's some misunderstanding going on. Perhaps showing the [Settings] section of your ~/.xplanetFX/xplanetFX.conf could bring some light to it.

Oh and perhaps have a look @ the tools tab while rendering, in the logs you can see what position xplanetFX should render. Check if it fits your settings.
