asciiquarium as a screensaver?

Hi everyone,

I read a bit on this but couldn't find what I was looking for.

I am using icewm and would like to use asciiquarium as a screensaver. For now it runs in my console no problem but i'd like it as screensaver I figure there might be a way to make xscreensaver to do that, but I would appreciate if any of you could give me a shortcut to get there.

Thanx a lot for your time and efforts

I have seen that. But I forgot to mention I am using IceWm

Basically, I can run it in a console so I guess it should be quite easy to make it fun full screen through a script after 7-8 idle minutes. but I can't figure out how.

Thanx for looking tho
