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.
