SYNOPSIS

3ddesk [ OPTIONS ]

DESCRIPTION

3D Desktop is an OpenGL program for switching virtual desktops in a seamless 3-dimensional manner. The default "visualization" maps your screen onto an N-sided "carousel" which is rotated to select the next screen. When activated the current desktop appears to zoom out so as to make your desktop appear to be actually in a 3d environment with your other desktops.

--view=xxx
  Uses the options from the view in 3ddesktop.conf
--mode=xxx

--acquire[=#]
  Grab images for all the desktops by cycling thru (sleep for x millisecs at each screen for refresh)
--acquirecurrent

--nozoom

--changespeed

--gotoright
  Goto the desktop to the right
--gotoleft

SETUP

3ddesk --acquire

This starts the 3ddeskd server and acquires an image of each of your virtual desktops. It will cycle through each desktop and return to your current.

USAGE

Bind a key combination to /usr/bin/3ddesk and press the bound key. This will bring you into a 3d environment where you choose your next desktop. If the server hasn’t been started it will try to start it.

FILES

/etc/3ddesktop/3ddesktop.conf
