XScreenSaver(1) 		     General Commands Manual			  XScreenSaver(1)

NAME
       slidescreen - permute the screen image like an 8-puzzle

SYNOPSIS
       slidescreen  [-display  host:display.screen] [-background color] [-grid-size pixels] [-ibw
       pixels] [-increment pixels] [-delay usecs] [-delay2 usecs]  [-window]  [-root]  [-install]
       [-visual visual]

DESCRIPTION
       The slidescreen program takes an image, divides it into a grid, deletes a random square of
       that grid, and then randomly slides one of the neighbors of this "hole" into the hole (and
       repeat.)

       The  image  that  it manipulates will be grabbed from the portion of the screen underlying
       the window, or from the system's video input, or from a random file on disk, as	indicated
       by   the   grabDesktopImages,  grabVideoFrames,	and  chooseRandomImages  options  in  the
       ~/.xscreensaver file; see xscreensaver-demo(1) for more details.

OPTIONS
       slidescreen 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.

       -grid-size pixels
	       The size of the grid cells.  Default 70 pixels.

       -ibw pixels
	       The size of the "gutter" between grid cells.  Default 1 pixel.

       -increment pixels
	       How  many  pixels by which a piece should be moved when sliding to a new location.
	       Default 10 pixels.

       -delay microseconds
	       How much of a delay should be introduced between steps of  the  animation  of  the
	       motion  of  each  segment.  Default 50000, which is 0.05 seconds.  This is closely
	       related to the -increment parameter.

       -delay microseconds
	       How much of a delay should be introduced between the end of the motion of one seg-
	       ment  and  the  beginning of the motion of another.  Default 1000000, which is one
	       second.

ENVIRONMENT
       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.
