       xteddy - cuddly teddy bear for your X Windows desktop.

       Xteddy is a cuddly teddy bear for your X Windows desktop.

       Normally,  xteddy  just  sits around doing nothing. After all, that's what teddy bears are
       for. Look at him, talk to him, place heavy windows on top of him, zap him around until  he
       becomes dizzy, do what you like; he will always be your true (albeit virtual) friend.

       You  can  move  xteddy  with  the  mouse  by pointing at him and dragging him around. When
       clicked upon, he will pop up on top of all other windows. If you type "q" or "Esc" on him,
       he  will  exit  (or, as I like to think of it, be tucked away in the file system until you
       need him next time).

       That's it. But he's cute.


       -wm    Use the window manager. Normally, xteddy sets the override_redirect  flag  for  his
              window,  which  will cause most window managers to ignore him. However, some window
              managers might have problems coping with a window that is nailed  directly  to  the
              root.  In that case, use this option. If possible, instruct your window manager not
              to put any title bar or window frame on the window, or xteddy will lose some of his

       -float Float  up on top of overlapping windows. This will make xteddy stay in sight at all
              times, so you won't lose him. However, this is a bit intrusive and quite  unlike  a
              real teddy bear, so it is not the default action.

              Disable  the  "quit"  command  (do  not  quit when typing "q" in the window, but of
              course still on explicit window kills  or  process  kills).   This  might  seem  an
              unnecessary  option,  but  if  you  use  the -wm option Xteddy might keep receiving
              keyboard events even after the mouse has left his window. I you use the -wm  option
              in  conjunction  with  a  click-to-type  window manager, you would probably want to
              include this option.

              Disable the X11 cursor over the xteddy window.

       -F,-f  < file > Display another image instead of xteddy.  file can be the full name of  an
              image  file  which reasonably should contain a transparent background.  If there is
              no  such   file   in   the   current   working   directory   xteddy   searches   in
              $(installation_prefix)/share/xteddy,  where $(installation_prefix) is determined at
              compile time (for instance /usr/X11R6).  If this fails by default /usr/share/xteddy
              is  searched.   Failing  this, /usr/local/share/xteddy is searched.  If there is no
              such file in these directories the following appendixes where appended to the given
              name:  xpm,  png, tif, jpg, jpeg, gif and pnm.  These files will be searched in the
              three directories.  If all files the last try is to append the extensions in  upper
              cases. '-F' and '-f' are equivalent, and the space in '-f <file>' is optional.

       If  no  `-F` parameter is given file equals to xteddy or more precisely to the name of the
       calling program.  For instance if there is a symlink

              ln -s xteddy xpenguin

       then file equals to xpenguin and the  appropriate  pixmaps  with  the  name  xpenguin  are
       searched for.

              Any height and width specifications will be ignored.

       The  Desktop  Manager in Sun CDE (Common Desktop Environment) does not like xteddy. Xteddy
       by default does not use the window manager, and so he shows up as a sticky window  on  all
       desktops.  If  you  don't  like this, and try to circumvent it by running him with the -wm
       option, move him by grabbing him by the tummy instead of by the title bar, and  then  move
       him  partly off the screen, the image is lost and never redrawn again, so all you see is a
       silhouette of a teddy bear.  I have no idea why this happens. If you know, please tell me,
       and  if you can fix it, please do. If you run CDE on other platforms than Sun, please tell
       me if it works for you. CDE does something which xteddy  does  not  handle  properly,  and
       since I have a Sun with CDE myself I would like to know what the problem is.

       For  most X servers, the -float option does not work properly if xteddy is moved partially
       off the screen. This is the X server's fault, not mine.

       If two copies of xteddy are placed so they overlap, and both  were  run  with  the  -float
       option,  the  X  server will try to put each on top of the other in an endless loop, which
       looks very bad and takes a lot of CPU power.

       Xteddy does not make use of the X resource database. I just didn't get around to that.
