carousel man page

carousel — displays multiple images rotating in a circular formation

Synopsis

carousel [-display host:display.screen] [-visual visual] [-window] [-root] [-count int] [-zoom | -no-zoom] [-tilt XY] [-titles | -no-titles] [-font font] [-speed ratio] [-duration seconds] [-fps] [-debug] [-wireframe]

Description

Loads several random images, and displays them flying in a circular formation. The circle changes speed and direction randomly, tilts on its axis, and the images move in and out.

This program requires a good video card capable of supporting large textures.

To specify the directory that images are loaded from, run xscreensaver-demo(1) and click on the "Advanced" tab.

Options

-visual visual
Specify which visual to use. Legal values are the name of a visual class, or the id number (decimal or hex) of a specific visual.
-window
Draw on a newly-created window. This is the default.
-root
Draw on the root window.
-count int
How many images to display. Default 7.
-zoom | -no-zoom
Whether the images should move in and out (toward and away from the axis of rotation). Default true.
-tilt XY | -no-tilt
Whether the axis of rotation should tilt, and how. -tilt X means that it will tilt toward and away from the viewer. -tilt Y means that it will tilt to the left and right of the screen. -tilt XY (the default) means it will do both.
-titles | -no-titles
Whether to display the file names of the images beneath them. Default: yes.
-font font-name
The font to use for titles. Note that the size of the font affects the clarity of the characters, not their size (it is auto-scaled.)
-duration seconds
Every duration seconds, one of the images will be replaced with a new one. Default 20 seconds.
-speed ratio
Speed up or slow down the animation. 0.5 means half as fast as the default; 2.0 means twice as fast.
-delay number
Per-frame delay, in microseconds. Default: 20000 (0.02 seconds.).
-fps
Display the current frame rate, CPU load, and polygon count.
-debug
Prints debugging info to stderr.
-wireframe
Another debug mode.

Environment

DISPLAY
to get the default host and display number.
XENVIRONMENT
to get the name of a resource file that overrides the global resources stored in the RESOURCE_MANAGER property.
