Commands tagged xwinwrap (1)

  • xwinwrap allows you to run any program in the root desktop pane. I like to run atlantis, it goes well against Fedora 10's blue sun background. At one time this also served a useful purpose for me as a workaround for a problem that would happen when the video card went into sleep mode.
