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 sedaTurca,

wow that's awesome dude! I would really appreciate that!

An easy way could be to copy the english (or whatever) language file to your desktop, edit it and the copy your version back to the right location.

The language files are located in /usr/share/xplanetFX/languages

To copy the english one to your Dektop simply execute the following command:

cp /usr/share/xplanetFX/languages/en.py ~/Desktop/tr.py

You can edit it with your favorite text editor, it belongs to your user after copying. If you're done with editing copy it back, this time with super user rights. Depending on your distribution it is something like:

sudo cp ~/Desktop/tr.py /usr/share/xplanetFX/languages/

You can repeat the last two steps until you're satisfied with the result.

If the file is ready to go please post anywhere in the blog mentioned on top of this page with your email address (it isn't visible to the public) and I'll contact you afterwards.

Thanks a bunch in advance for your contribution! Kind regards, markus.

Thanks! I also like to suggest you to change any reference to /home/$USER in your script with ${HOME} since not everybody's home is under /home (mine is not ;-) and when this happens the script cannot find the configuration file and raises a lot of errors.

Did I told you I really like this program? :-)

Hey!

Thank you very much for your suggestion. I just uploaded a new version - it would be great if you could test if your problems are gone.

And thank you very much for your opinion about this software!

Cheers, markus.

Still getting error :-( From what I understand from your script you use

/usr/share/xplanetFX/xplanetFX.conf

as a default if there is no initial configuration. The workaround I suggest in this case is you use another variable e.g.

DEFAULTCONFIG=$WORKDIR"/xplanetFX.conf"

and you substitute line 298 with

cp $DEFAULTCONFIG $USERDIR

With this modifications xplanetFX works flawlessly out of the box (at least for what I can test :-)

Keep up the good work!
Cheers, Paolo

Hey Paolo,

thanks again! Sorry but it's getting confusing for me. In the first post you talked about a displaced home folder, now you seem to have problems with /usr/share?

The substitutions from /home/$USER in the first update were in a location you should not have triggered so my confusion really started while working along your first suggestion.

Whatever - while trying to figure out what you meant I found a regular bug with paths that could possibly be your problem. It is uploading right now and hopefully fixes the problem.

No offence but perhaps it could be more effective to post error messages in the future. As I wrote in the description - support is better done in the blog, there's a short list of points that could possibly make this kind of conversation easier and more target-aiming.

Anyways - thank you very much for the bug report and your patience.

Greetings, markus.

Any chance on getting this to work on KDE with OpenSUSE ? Getting it running on Peppermint Linux would be nice as well.
