The Icon Bar: News and features: A FlowerBox beneath your Windows
 

A FlowerBox beneath your Windows

Posted by Andrew Duffell on 16:55, 6/1/2005 | , , , ,
 
tinctRichard Wilson who many may know because of his role in the NetSurf project has released a screensaver for RISC OS 4 called FlowerBox.
FlowerBox looks very similar to a certain screensaver from MS Windows and "provides a three dimensional animation of a morphing object moving around the screen". It currently requires a minimum of a StrongARM, and 'Tinct' must be installed.

I've just updated the ZIP file slightly now so that it has a simple install script. Previously RISC OS 5 users would have to move the file due to the way Configure scans things being broken.
It should now be automatically installed into the relevant bit for the currently running OS version.

Cheers!
