telak is a program that draw local or remote pictures on your root window. This is very useful if you want to have webcam, graphs or something like this drawn above your wallpaper.
This program follows the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two dashes (-). A summary of options is included below.
-h --help Show summary of options.
-v --version Show version of program.
-d --display Specify display.
-c --config Specify configuration file.
--cache Specify cache directory.
The format is pretty simple. Each image have to be declared in a section, which is defined like this: [image_name]
After this, you will have to declare options you want.
url = <url or path> URL (http, ftp) or path (/home...) to your picture. MANDATORY.
width = <size in px> Force the width of the picture to X.
heigth = <size in px> Force the heigth of the picture to X.
x = <position in px> Position of the image.
y = <position in px> Position of the image.
refresh = <time in seconds> Reload image every X seconds.
reverse = <1 or 0> Reverse color mode.
Here is a telakrc example.
[test] url = /home/staff/acid/test.jpg width = 100 height = 100 x = 800 y = 600 reverse = 0
[photo] url = http://www.somedomaine.com/somepath/arf.png x = 200 y = 0 refresh = 300 reverse = 1
~/.telak/telakrc Main configuration file.
~/.telak/cache Default cache directory.
