One year after the initial release, the source code of TuxSaver 1.0 is available.
RPM for Mandrake is also available at kdelook.org:

You can see Tux living on a tropical island or on an iceberg. Choose your favorite island in the setupdialogbox !

Don't watch this screensaver too long, you might get seasick ! :-)

TuxSaver is a 3D KDE screensaver.
It requires OpenGL and KDE 3.x
Make sure you have installed the kdelibs and mesalibs (GL and GLU), including the development packages.

Send me an email If you would like to draw new object in ac3d, make/change stories or add sounds.

tar -xzvf tuxsaver-x.tar.gz
cd tuxsaver-x
./configure --prefix=/usr --disable-debug
(the prefix must be your kde installation directory, for example =/usr for mandrake, =/opt/kde3 for suse)
(on debian it could be necessary to add --with-qt-includes=/usr/include/qt3)
make install

Works fine in Slackware 9.0. Thanks for a great screen saver.

What do working on computers have to do with being a chimney sweep?

 Xandros instructions

 by redrum on: Oct 2 2004

Like most of these screensavers, when compiling from source on Xandros 2 and 2.5, one must first use:

./configure --prefix=/usr -with-qt-includes=/usr/include/qt3


(Log in as root or su)
make install

Then, as root, execute

cp '/usr/share/applnk/System/ScreenSavers/tuxsaver.desktop' '/usr/share/applnk/Applications/System/ScreenSavers/'

This has been a thorn in my side for some time... hope it helps someone else.

I remember a story driven screen saver of an island for Windows a few years ago. Nice to see something like that available for KDE!

Very important!
The link to the homepage indeed doens't work anymore, because we lost the webspace (we = my brother and me)

But I have made a new site:

(or if that site happens to be down: http://www.tuxer.be.tt)

Have fun with the penguin! :-)

other version of GCC maybe. I have read that the new GCC is more "strict"

there is an RPM of tuxsaver available on KDELOOK. Just install that one.

Btw: it seems that this project is the most downloaded of all :-)
someone should really develop it further.
My brother, some other guys and myself used to work on it, but we don't have time for it anymore....

maybe i will port it to QT4 when KDE4 comes out.

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.
