How to change the pics in matrixview screensaver


I love the matrix view screensaver, but i can only look at Neo for so long before I wanna change the pics, and Jons_Collasius on UbuntuForums is the person with the solution.

He/She/It/Other says that you need to edit /usr/share/applications/screensavers/matrixview.desktop (I needed to sudo) so that it looks like this:

[Desktop Entry]
Encoding=UTF-8
Name=MatrixView
Comment=Assimilation of Matrix GL by Alex Zolotov (http://knoppix.ru/matrixgl.shtml) Ported to Linux by Tugrul Galatali – .
TryExec=matrixview
Exec=matrixview -r –image /path/to/your/pictures
StartupNotify=false
Terminal=false
Type=Application
Categories=Screensaver

I used a folder in my Dropbox folder for this so that i can have all of my boxen show the same awesome pics.

I’m at OLF


I have made it to OLF and as of right now I’m bored as I can be, but I’m also here the day before. I didnt sleep for shit last night and then downed big ass can of monster. So now I’m sick to my stomach (I need to puke). Monsterb and Klaatu are gonna meet me here in the food court, so mybe the day will pick up a bit.

I have some video and pics taken already so this should be a media rich event.

Leo Laporte’s Egyptian Vacation


Leo is back from Egypt and he has posted some great pics . There are various images here ranging from Holiday Vacation (which it was), to touristy ancient Egypt pics, to some really gritty in-the-life-of type of images that you’d see in National Geographic. I’m glad he posted these because I’ll never make it to Egypt but I feel like I’ve kinda been there
