Bitchin' Camaro Usage of Xearth and XFishTank

I have a certain way i like my root window. It keeps me happy.
  • XEarth in merc projection (map mode), not quite filling the screen, with me in the center.
  • Xfishtank swimming on top of the earth (FISH IN SPACE).

    Try adding these two lines to your .xinitrc
    xearth -proj merc -pos 'fixed 37 -122' -mag .75 -wait 45 -night 7 -fork &
    xfishtank -b 50 -f 15 -r .1 -d &

    Xearth is available from mit.edu or localy.
