xplanetFX: update in theme „bulb“

I extracted the essential parts of „bulb“ and draw new shadows to be more flexible in coloring the background. The result is an update for „bulb“ you can easily get via the update wizard in the tools tab or the themepool directly.

Btw… the theme works best with orbit enabled at an angle of about -70 degrees.

Update: There was a tiny bug in the night style. If you downloaded within the first seconds it was online please reinstall via theme pool.

    Great themes! Really nice :).
    Is it possible to have xplanetFX randomly change the theme?

  3. Markus

    Hey Mark,

    thank you very much!

    To have random themes please create a new text file and copy/paste the following contents to it:

    if [ "`pidof -s -x -o %PPID xplanetFX`" != "" ]; then
    while [ -f $home'lock' ]; do sleep 2; done
    file1=`/bin/ls -1 "$dir" | sort --random-sort | head -1`
    path=`readlink --canonicalize "$dir/$file1"`
    file2=`/bin/ls -1 "$path" | grep ".tpl" | sort --random-sort | head -1 `
    echo "switching to $file1 `basename $file2 .tpl`"
    xplanetFX --template  $file1 `basename $file2 .tpl`
    if [ $restart -eq 1 ]; then
        xplanetFX --start
    exit 0

    Don’t forget to change the home path in the second line to fit your users name. Save it, mark the file as executable and call it via an entry in your users crontab.

    That should do the trick.

    Just update to the latest version 2.2.15 and call „xplanetFX –random“ from your users crontab once in a while.

    Cheers, Markus.
