KDE Screensaver

This is an OpenGL screensaver for KDE4, which shows a rotating cube whose faces are shown on one or more images contained in a directory.

KMyGLCubeSaver supports images with the extension *. jpg *. bmp *. png *. jpg *. gif

They must be included in the hidden directory $HOME/.myglcubesaver. This directory is created automatically.

In the setup window, you can lock the rotation of the cube around one or more axes, modify the time to change the image and choose whether you want to see the images sequentially or randomly.

Do you see a cube with KDE symbol on all faces or a cube with empty faces?

If you delete all the images in $HOME/.myglcubesaver what you see?

when there's no image in the folder, I get the cube with the KDE logo.
When I move one or more images to the folder, I get a white cube.

uhm... the same happens on my system if the images have "jpg" extension but they aren't really jpg files. For example, if I create some files with:

echo >a.jpg in $HOME/.myglcubesaver

i see a rotating cube with empty face (mine is green, because this is the default color of the cube).

Pls, can you send me an email with some of your images? Do not send anything if the images are personal stuff.

Or you can try with something gif or jpg downloaded by images.google.com

Thank you.

I tried with .jpeg, .jpg, .gif and .png from various sources (Camera, Scans, comics from the Internet), which certainly aren't all corrupted.

Maybe it's an issue with KDE SC 4.4?

I don't know, I use kubuntu 9.10, with kde 4.3.2.

See glwidgetimpl.h. At row 39 I define a dummy image content (the kde logo). This dummy image is correctly created, as I understand.

At row 47 I try to get a list of your directory content. If the list has one or some members, I get one of this images and load it (row 57).

I something goes wrong with load, you shound see an empty cube. So, the problem can be here (row 57-61). But I have no idea.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
