xcowsay is a cute cow for your Linux desktop. Inspired by the original cowsay.

Usage: xcowsay [OPTION]... [MESSAGE]...
Display a cow on your desktop with MESSAGE or standard input.

Options:
-h, --help Display this message and exit.
-v, --version Print version information.
-t, --time=SECONDS Number of seconds to display message for
-r, --reading-speed=N Number of milliseconds to delay per word.
-f, --font=FONT Set message font (Pango format).
-d, --daemon Run xcowsay in daemon mode.
--cow-size=SIZE Size of the cow (small, med, large).
--debug Keep daemon attached to terminal.

Default values for these options can be specified in the xcowsay config
file. See the man page for more information.

If the display_time option is not set the display time will be calcuated
from the reading_speed parameter multiplied by the word count.

If you don't want DBus support configure with --disable-dbus
