Linux, ... probably even more KDE/OpenGL compatible platforms (let me know if you get it running on a system that is not mentioned here)
- Choose between Images or the current Desktop to "sink under water"
- Various effects: Whirl, Bubble, Rain
Probably it's best to look at some screenshots, which usually give the best impression about the current status:
|Version v0.5 (linux) kde-3|
- ... still much work to do...
Currently there are no prebuild binaries available. contact me if you are interested in a binary version and can't build it yourself
- Gentoo ebuild
(for our gentoo users :)
extract kwatersaver4-ebuild.tar.bz2 to the local portage-overlay (/usr/local/portage). Happy emerge'ing!
The sources contain a project file for kdevelop4. And of course the usual cmake files to build with gcc.
older versions: kwatersaver4-0.6.tar.bz2
