A few days ago I installed Debian on my girlfriend's PC, which means that these days I have had to look for several applications that are "cool" enough for her to be delighted with Linux 😀
This that I show you now is certainly an excellent option ... - » oneko
oneko is an application that will make a funny kitten go around and around our entire screen, here are some screenshots of the cat:
But this is just the kitty, which is the result of simply running oneko, there are more pets but ... well let's install first oneko 😀
If they use Debian, Ubuntu or derivatives they install it through:
sudo apt-get install oneko
I imagine that in other distros the package is called the same 😉
Once installed in a terminal or through [Alt] + [F2] execute oneko and voila, this cool cat will be shown to you.
What if I don't want a cat?
They have other pets to choose from ... for example, if they run:
Then they will have a tiger:
If they execute it but with the parameter -dog then it will be a puppy:
But ... those of us who are anime fans, we can have Sakura Kinomoto on our desktop with the parameter -sakura:
As well as Tomoyo Daidouji with the -tomoyo parameter:
We have even more options to customize our pet, here are some useful parameters:
-tofocus : It will make the pet not automatically follow our cursor, but will be "on its own" or doing whatever it wants 😉
-rv : It will invert the colors of the pet, for example the cat is white by default, if we apply this parameter the cat will be black.
-fg : If we do not like the color of the pet's lines, then we can simply indicate a color, for example:
oneko -fg red
-bg : If we do not like our pet's skin color, we can change that color with this parameter, for example:
oneko -bg red
I recommend reading the oneko (man oneko) help for more information 😉
Anyway, without a doubt this is a pretty funny application, it can entertain someone and show them that Linux is not that monster of white letters and black background, but that it is quite the opposite ... colorful, cheerful and may have mustaches LOL! !
PD: Too bad there are no hamsters T_T
