pngphoon project is intended as a successor to the great xphoon program (X PHase of mOON), which was written by Jef Poskanzer and Craig Leres and is available from: http://www.acme.com/software/xphoon/. xphoon is a program that displays the actual phase of the moon on the X11 root window. Nowadays all desktop systems like KDE hide the X11 rootwindow with an own background image, so xphoon could paint as much in the root window as it likes to, but nothing was to been seen. KDE has an advanced interface for programs to dynamically provide background images in png format. Thats what is program was originally written for. Heres an example. The image size must be 760x760 or bigger to place the moon. If its smaller just the stars will be drawn. And by the way: it is pronounced "pingphoon" (like "typhoon"). Compiling: necessary are only a C compiler and the development files of the png library (png.h and libpng.so or .a and their dependencies of cause) a simple "make" should create the binary. Setting up pngphoon for KDE: assuming that the binary has been copied to /usr/local/bin/pngphoon select configure desktop bring up the advanced options dialog check "Use the following program for drawing the background" click add and fill out the form like this: Name: pngphoon Comment: Phase of moon Command: /usr/local/bin/pngphoon -w %x -h %y -f %f Preview Cmd: /usr/local/bin/pngphoon -w %x -h %y -f %f Executable: /usr/local/bin/pngphoon Refresh Time: 60 min click "OK" on everything you opened.
