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".

For Fedora 15

I had to install:
yum install xplanet ImageMagick-perl ImageMagick

And after i had to change /usr/bin/xplanetFX from gconftool-2 to GConf

If someone had the same problem to start it ;)

Have a nice day

Hey Chris,

thank you very much for your estimation and especially for the report! I added the package names in YUM to the manual on the website. I also would like to add the gconf command to xplanetFX, please could you be a bit more detailed in your changes to /usr/bin/xplanetFX? Perhaps post the whole line you changed - because I need to know the correct and working command for Fedora to not break the things.

Thank you very much in advance, markus.

Hello again

i hope i can help you a bit with it - but you dont have to thank for it :)

so here the lines i changed (line 1614 - 1616) :

# GNOME 2!
if [ "`which GConf`" != "" ]; then gconf="GConf"
else gconf="GConf"; fi
$gconf -t str -s /desktop/gnome/background/picture_filename "$FINAL"

with that it works fine;)

Greets chris
ps. if you have a question - just replay :)

Hey mystica,

you are free to do whatever you like with xplanetFX and its output. If you use themes with additional artwork from flickr.com you have to respect the CC license. But - as you said - you drew your own background and use just the rendered earth so there shouldn't be any problem at all.

Cheers, markus.

Website and Repository are down. In my package manager the update is displayed, but not downloadable. I really would like to know what has happened to XPlanetFX. Is it abandoned? How can I update (deb-file) from 2.5.6 to the latest 2.5.7 - is the file mirrored anywhere?

Unpaid bills, as simple as that. Server will be up again as soon as I have the money for it.
