Description:
Xplanet with custom frontend for Dragonbox Compo 2013

Xplanet is an advanced version of Xearth. You can use it to render pictures of the earth or any planet of our solar-system including their moons and/or the sun. The idea is that you run it in the background, and your Desktop-Wallpaper is updated almost in realtime, showing eg. a picture of the earth as seen from space right now. You can also display the image in a window or just save it.

The desktop-update uses a script for xfce (only). Not much I can do about that unfortunately, since the native wallpaper-support of Xplanet does not work. Cloud-button is not possible because this is a config-file specific setting. I could only try to add a drop-down box listing all config files ...

"Update desktop wallpaper" doesn't seem to work in OpenBox. Also, it would be nice to have a toggle button for the clouds so I don't have to type the option manually.
