Today is my request day, though 🙂
Up to another user request for screensaver, showing the weather forecast for the current city,
I decided to run and that request. So here it’s first appearing!
IMPORTANT: The current weather is set to Burgas, Bulgaria, so if you want to change it
go to http://www.rssweather.com/dir find your city and copy and paste the RSS URL into
/usr/lib/xscreensaver/weather like root!
sudo gedit /usr/lib/xscreensaver/weather and replace the RSS URL with your one!
Also by adding my repository: sudo apt-get install weather-gl
PS: I’ll be glad if someone tell me how to make the degree sign ° look normal 🙂
Today as i was reading my feeds i got into the question of the user Honza Pokorny about some clock screensavers for Linux Desktop. So i decided to modify a bit the file GLText coming with the package xscreensaver-gl and here is the result: some simple digital clock screensavers.
sudo apt-get install simple-clock-gl
or you can DOWNLOAD it to your desktop without touching your sources.list and then test it
There are few in this package, as anyone can modify gltext.desktop file to his needs. And as anyone loves screenshots here are they:
simple clock, colored, with simple date, with full date, and wired.
If you want to modify it and make your version, just edit the file
by changing “%X” at line #6 to something else like
Exec=gltext -root -front -text ‘your text here\n %l:%M:%S %p’
You can find more at XScreenSaver manual
Exec=gltext -root -text “%X” -no-spin
