I DID!
While your attempts to provide an alternative to XSnow are appreciated, your response to bassmadrigal was, IMO, completely inappropriate, and like your choice of graphics for your project, childish, at best.
I started this thread and DO NOT consider that response or any of your subsequent replies to be a contribution to the topic, but just the opposite.

@bassmadrigal,
You have nothing to apologize for. Let him take his ball and go home.

new xsnow available

A new version of xsnow is available on sourceforge:

https://sourceforge.net/projects/xsnow/

From the website:

Finally, a working xsnow for Gnome, KDE, etc. Based on the original xsnow-1.42 created by Rick Jansen, after the xsnow-2019 conference in Antas (Spain) we now have available a xsnow that works on many desktop environments, even Raspian. By request of many beta-testers, a graphical front end has been created as well.

Question Dependency

Requires GdkMonitor. Anyone know how to get this? Slackware 14.2, here.

Code:
  CC       xsnow-transparent.o
transparent.c: In function 'get_monitor_rects':
transparent.c:51:12: warning: implicit declaration of function 'gdk_display_get_n_monitors' [-Wimplicit-function-declaration]
    int n = gdk_display_get_n_monitors(display);
            ^
transparent.c:54:7: error: unknown type name 'GdkMonitor'
       GdkMonitor *monitor = gdk_display_get_monitor(display, i);
       ^

GdkMonitor

On my Ubuntu 19.04 system, GdkMonitor is defined in /usr/include/gtk-3.0/gdk/gdkmonitor.h

And this file is part of libgtk-3-dev

Debian dependencies are listed in the file 'dependencies' in the xsnow directory.

That new xsnow linked above seems to work fine with Xfce 4.14, for what it's worth.

Well...... It is working at the moment in 4.12.x, but last night when I was using 4.14.0, it, XSnow, was not working properly. As reported elsewhere, Santa was a blur and the snow looked like string confetti.
I'll let the "dust settle" on 4.14 and try again in a week or two.


While I think about it.... I had used src2pkg on the latest version of XSnow and that is what wasn't working last night. With that in mind, this morning, I deleted the package and used, "configure," then "make," and finally, "make install," and that is what is running properly at the moment in Xfce-4.12.x. Why that might make a difference I don't know.

Standard Slackware 14.2? If you have gdkmonitor.h in your system, from whence did it come?

Oh. Your swapping between 4.12 and 4.14 gave me the impression that you were switching between 14.2 and current, respectively. I guess current has a more up to date 4.12 (or, at least, gdkmonitor.h)!

Works fine for me on -current, with Plasma5. I downloaded the .deb and ran deb2tgz on it. Installed and ran kmenuedit to add it to Games. Seems fine - maybe the grandkids will get a kick out of it.

About blurred Santa and confetti-snow: just try to click some buttons in the 'settings' panel. If you think you messed it up, kill xsnow and delete the file ~/.xsnowrc where xsnow keeps it's settings and preferences.
