    Default I want the Atlantis desktop :-P

    Hi!
    I was looking at Youtube and saw some demonstration of desktop-enviromen. One demonstration was of an Ubuntu with something called Atlantic Desktop. It is an transparant 3D Cube with swimming fishes inside the cube and in the background.

    I go into Comfiz-fusion web-page and there i could read that its not a Plugin, but a part of Atlantic Screensaver that come original with KDE4-Screensaver-extra, but in my OpenSUSE11.1 KDE4.22 i cant find this.

    Anyone tried this?

    You sure it is, I'm not using it but from the sounds of things you're talking about 2 things here.

    This is compiz and I would thought is in unsupported plugins.
    It is an transparant 3D Cube with swimming fishes inside the cube

    Moving fish in bg would be the kde4 screensaver, as for the 2 together without looking at the unsupported plugins not got a clue how.

    First I would solve the cube I suspect you can open the screensaver and find atlantis screensaver certainly is listed in the default kde4 pkg.

    Edit
    As for 4.2 can't comment perhaps its not quite made it or is being dropped.
    Man first, have a try at Info, have a look at Wiki, if all that fails Scroogle!!!!!
    If I've helped click on the Rep button I don't know what it does but it sounds cool.

    Sorry to say, but the moving fishes is not listet under Screensavers. Transparant cube is fixed in Compiz-manager. I just want to replase the Gears with the moving fishes. It just look so cool :-)

    What you saw was nothing more than the compiz desktop cube that you can make transparant even without rotating it. There is also the Atlantis plugin which makes whales swim arround inside this cube. So now that you made it transparant you can see the whales at all times.

    If you want fish in a fishtank swimming arround on your desktop while you work then all you need is an aquarium screensaver and the xwinwrap script. This script allows one to show movies or screensavers as desktop backgrounds.

    Voil, there is nothing you need to search for, everything is there on your pc, you only need to install compiz and the xwinwrap script from the compiz repository.

    Exactly (although the recent Atlantis plugin seems to show smaller and real fish now):

    kde4.2 atlantis screensaver - Google Search

    This implies that the screensaver is there. Though adding Suse to it doesn't show it but in 4.1.3 it should be found something like
    /usr/share/kde4/services/ScreenSavers/atlantis.desktop

    As here
    Novell: openSUSE 11.1 for x86: kdeartwork4-screensaver

    This tells you you need the screensaver to get the fish(heah you learn something new every day I never new they where the glxgears)

    Plugins/Cube - Compiz Wiki

    Then this talks about the screensaver which I don't think you'll find easily as it is in experimental not even unsupported, and may involve git compiling.

    Plugins/Screensaver - Compiz Wiki

    With out a link I'm using you eyes and interpretation of it. I have to agree with the earlier post combining the 2 sounds tricky.

    Hi!
    Yes i have this file, but it doesnt show up in the list over available screensavers. On Compiz-homepages they only mention Atlantis exist, but there is no description on how to get it to work. It look like an unofficial plugin from some sort of a GIT-source. This is something new for me and i really dont know that GIT is or how to deal with it.

    I was hoping someone has allready feed the fish in the tank and could tell us how to make it work.
    Well it really looks cool and i really wish i could get it to work :-(

    Atlantis is in the unsupported the cube that is at least I'm 90% sure do you have unsupported plugins?

    Perhaps Akoellh can confirm or deny where they got it from.

    Hi zio900

    Might want to start a new thread with a relevant title, perhaps also include you laptop model to.

    It's just sitting at the bottom of this thread it may not get seen by the people that can help.

    You seem to have several problems you could keep them together but you may find it easier to manage if certain bits are separate i.e
    1 2 perhaps applications forum
    3 maybe the above or you have the laptop forum in hardware.
    4 network/internet => wireless

    Just think if you start your own thread/threads, you may get better help. More so if you give them some nice titles about the problems.
