A screensaver for Linux and UNIX that displays the planets of the Solar System
(inc Pluto). A random planet is chosen and rotated on screen against a
starfield background. As the planet orbits the sun, it transitions from light
into darkness and a corona effect appears.


V0.2.2: 2012-06-01
- Fixed: Build time fixes for newer distros which use --as-needed as a
default GCC option

V0.2.1: 2011-03-14
- Fixed: Improved building scripts for newer distros
- Fixed: Now doesn't display cursor. Thanks to "druciferre"

V0.2: 2010-06-27
- Fixed: Minor change to the build scripts to fix compilation on distros
using the new DSO changes to ld (eg Fedora 13).
- Added: Smoothed starfield points for OpenGL/Hardware implementations
which support it.
- Fixed: Don't show in KDE 'Lost & Found' menu if both KDE and Gnome
versions are installed.

V0.1: 2009-09-18
- Inital Release

very good screensaver.
just some things that i'd enjoy:

1. some kind of glow around sun, so it looks more like the real sun. that would be really great) may be simply like corona around the planet, but around the sun. actually i think corona should be moved from planet to the sun, to be more "real life" like.

2. not only corona, but also an "atmosphere" layer around planets. though i'm not sure on this - it will eat actually lots of cpu.

3. moon orbiting earth?

Also sizes of planets compared to sun are a bit off.

still very very nice thing.
i hope you'll make it even better.

Thanks for the suggestions, some good ones there. I especially like the atmosphere idea as that one hadn't occurred to me and could look really cool if implemented well.

The planet sizes versus the sun don't even come close to reality really. Aesthetics being the main reason, but I've tried to give a feeling of distance of each planet from the sun. Do you feel the sun is generally too large or too small?

mostly the size is ok.
but i think it's a bit too big compared to mercury.
and a bit bigger compared to earth.
though i may be wrong here.

My favorite screensaver doesn't seem to compile on Kubuntu 12.04, even with all the libsdl*.dev there is...

Thank you, this was great.

P.S. If you could find a solution, quite a few of us would be very pleased.

I can certainly have a look and see what the problems and post a fix. Are you able to show me the output where it the compile fails? Thanks,

Here is the message i get:

/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libSDL.so: could not read symbols: Invalid operation
collect2: ld a retourné 1 code d'état d'exécution
make[2]: *** [solarsystem] Erreur 1

I have installed every libsdl*-dev that there is without any success.

This is related to the way Ubuntu and derivatives have changed their GCC toolchain. Instead of the part where you just run


Try this instead

make LIBS="-lSDL -lGLU -lGL -lSDL_image"

If that compiles, continue as normal. Note, this is 'hack' but I'll get around to implementing a proper fix

Linus Torvalds only has to enter a room, and every Windows computer in it segfaults instantly.

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.
