xteevee - Simulate various TV problems
xteevee [-display host:display.screen] [-window] [-root] [-install] [-visual visual]
[-cycle] [-no-cycle] [-static] [-no-static] [-roll] [-no-roll] [-bars] [-no-bars]
xteevee simulates various television problems, fondly re-creating the days when computers
were fun and I spent my time with an Atari 400 hooked up to a black-and-white TV I found
in someone's trash.
When run, xteevee picks a mode to display from the available options. If modes are
explicitly set on the command-line, they over-ride the implicit options and will be
choosen among exclusively. If modes are explicitly excluded from the command-line, the
they are simply removed from contention.
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.
xteevee 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.
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.
-cycle Cycle through all the available modes. This is the default.
Don't cycle modes.
-static Explicitly select the "static" mode.
Explicitly forbid the "static" mode.
-roll Explicitly select the "vertical roll" mode.
Explicitly forbid the "vertical roll" mode.
-bars Explicitly select the "color bars" mode.
Explicitly forbid the "color bars" mode.
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.
Notable X resources supported include the following:
static, roll and bars are booleans, defining which modes are to be implicitly available if
xteevee is run without command-line mode selections. cycle is a boolean, defining if
xteevee should cycle through each available mode or pick one and stick with it. delayMode
and delayBetween are integers, defining how long each mode should be displayed and how
long the time between them should be if cycle is on. staticSignal is an integer, defining
the strength of the signal during the "static" mode, as a percentage.
xteevee should simulate more TV problems.
