A little man with a big nose and a hat runs around spewing out messages to the screen. This code (and its bitmaps) were extracted from the xnlock program.
noseguy accepts the following options: -window Draw on a newly-created window. This is the default. -root Draw on the root window. -install Install a private colormap for the window. -visual visual Specify which visual to use. Legal values are the name of a visual class, or the id number (decimal or hex) of a specific visual. -font font The font used for the messages. -program program This program will be run periodically, and its output will be the text of the messages. Default: xscreensaver-text --cols 40 | head -n15 You can configure the text printed through the "Advanced" tab of xscreensaver-demo(1), or by editing your ~/.xscreensaver file. -filename file If mode is file, then the contents of this file will be used for all messages. -text string If mode is string, then this text will be used for all messages. -fps Display the current frame rate and CPU load.
DISPLAY to get the default host and display number. XENVIRONMENT to get the name of a resource file that overrides the global resources stored in the RESOURCE_MANAGER property.
