KDE Asciiquarium


KDE Screensaver

Score 71%
KDE Asciiquarium

Minimum required   KDE 3.3.x
Downloads:  15239
Submitted:  Sep 17 2005


KDE Asciiquarium is a KDE screensaver based off of Kirk Baucom's FABULOUS asciiquarium program (http://www.robobunny.com/projects/asciiquarium/).

Or in other words, it's a simulation of an ocean scene, but using ASCII art instead.

NOTE This content is the KDE 3 version of the screensaver. I have not uploaded the KDE 4 port here because it is now included with KDE 4 in the kdeartwork module.

Note the screenshot preview will probably be a bit dark, view the full screenshot to see what it's more likely to look like.

To install:
Extract the tarball, and change to its directory (aasaver-0.3.2). In that directory, run the following:

make install (this may need run as root)

You will then be able to find Asciiquarium in the Miscellaneous category of the Screensaver Control Panel.

At this time the only option is the number of fish to have present.

Thanks to Maksim Orlovich for starting the project, and Kirk Baucom and Joan Stark for the asciiquarium program and ASCII Art.


0.3.2 -- Initial public release.

 error 127?

I did the usual: ./configure, make, su, checkinstall. All fine until it comes to checkinstall (or likewise make install). I get the following error: "make: scons: command not found" and "make: *** [install] error 127".

Odd. It went through make successfully and then didn't install?

Try doing (from the same directory)

"./scons install" to run the local scons manually, that would hopefully work.

 no deb

Thanks, that works. But alas I cannot build a deb this way. I tried a checkinstall after installing it with ./scons install, but all I get is an empty deb. Never had those problems before - scons seems to make it a lot more complicated ... But the asciiquarium saver really is nice :)

 cannot compile x64

 by mscroggi on: Sep 6 2007
Score 50%

I love this screensaver.. I recently switched to an HP 8200 workstation. It is an x64 based machine (dual intel xeons).

When I attempt to compile the screensaver I get x86_64-suse-linux/bin/ld: cannot find -lqt-mt

Any ideas?

OS openSUSE 10.2 (X86-64)
Kernel x86_64
KDE 3.5.7
gcc 4.1.2

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

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.
