       noseguy - a little guy with a big nose wanders around being witty


       noseguy  [-display  host:display.screen]  [-foreground  color] [-background color] [-text-
       foreground color] [-text-background  color]  [-font  font]  [-window]  [-root]  [-install]

       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 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.

               to  get  the name of a resource file that overrides the global resources stored in
               the RESOURCE_MANAGER property.
