By request of many beta-testers, a graphical front end has been created as well.
Thanks for all your hard work!
Over the last couple of weeks I've been running xsnow daily and your improvements are greatly appreciated! Much better, IMHO, than the original, which I ran a few days ago so as to make a comparison.
Again, many thanks
and
Happy New Year!

Thanks for xsnow wvermin! I just downloaded and installed your latest and it is looking great. The younger grandkids get a big kick out of it!

If you have web pages, then there is also this clever CSS snow trick:

I notice these are rather old posts, but just for the record xsnow (version 1.42) seems to run fine on my Slackware 14.2 i386 system for Fluxbox, WindowMaker, X Afterstep, and Xfce; but as others have noted, not under KDE. However I'm happy that xsnow still well supported under Slackware and it confirms for me that the OS is true to its roots despite embracing newer features.

Just FYI, Xsnow-2.0.15 runs perfectly on kde-4 and 5, and Xfce-4.12 and 4.14.
I know "the season" is over, but I'm still running it and have been looking to see if there is a way to have it start automatically, like a screensaver, when I'm not at the computer.

I still run it since it could really snow at any time. I just took out Santa.

Maybe Santa needs a replacement for those times.
Like a snowplow, or something.
