Well, 1.42 works and I'm glad to have it, but I liked 1.40 much better.
In 1.42 the snow doesn't accumulate on the open windows, it just falls
directly to the bottom of the screen. OTOH, the Santa is better in
1.42, but, again, OTOH, I liked the reindeer better in 1.40.
Oh, well, as I said, good to have it nevertheless.
*Actually since there wasn't a package available, I compiled and installed 1.42.
Indeed the old xsnow did not work on my system but the newer version works beautifully on xfce. Only needs the new source and 2 small changes to the slackbuild for xgames in xap, perhaps PV would be interested in this small change?
Distribution: Linux From Scratch, Slackware64, Partedmagic
No it doesn't I never did like the way xsnow did that., if you move or close the window xsnow doesn't know about the new ppsition etc and it starts to look scruffy, also of course xsnow ( which I used for years and loved ) now doesn't work on a lot of platforms because it draws to the root window that a lot of platforms cover, ie xsnow doesn't work on kde, gnome, or lxde ( least without hacking about ), xdecorations does.
Yeah :-( I think it's more cosy when the snow buildings up, exciting! And then you have to wipe it clean when it gets scruffy, as you say. Would there be a chance that you could add it in as an option?
