Xsnow is the X-windows application that will let it snow on the root, in between and on windows.

Santa and his reindeer will complete your festive-season feeling.

How to compile:

To build:

xmkmf
make depend
make

To run:

./xsnow
or:
./xsnow& (in the background)

To install (be root):

make install
make install.man

If xmkmf does not work and you cannot get a working Makefile that way then try compiling yourself, eh, xsnow this way:

cc -o xsnow snow.c -lXext -lX11 -lXpm -lm -lsocket -lnsl

gcc, SUN Solaris users without a C-compiler, but with gcc installed, try the following two commands. The first compiles Xsnow, the second links Xsnow.

gcc -c -O2 -I/usr/openwin/include -DSVR4 -DSYSV xsnow.c
gcc -o xsnow xsnow.o -O2 -L/usr/openwin/lib -lXext -lX11 -lXpm -lm -lsocket -lnsl

Note: Xsnow-1.41 needs the Xpm library. It is available from:

ftp://ftp.x.org/contrib/libraries/

The current Xpm version is xpm3.4k

What's New in This Release:

All you KDE-users can now be even happier with a KDE-enabled Xsnow 1.42!
The snow will magnificently wipe out your icons, but not to worry, they're not really gone.
By wiping with a window or something you can make them reappear.
Car owners are used to this for years. Thanks to Robin Hogan who figured this out for xpenguin.
