Feature: Stellarium as desktop-background...?

  • Nobody/Anonymous

    would there be a possibility to make an option to run the programm permanently in the background of the desktop?

    I think stellarium would be far the best desktop "wallpaper" ... :)

      Hello folks,
      Just screen capture the image you would like as your desktop background and then save it to My Pictures folder.
      Then go to Properties on your Desktop and place it on your desktop background.
      I use the freeware graphics editor "IrfanView", first because it's FREE, it's fast, it's fairly user friendly, and can save images in a wide variety of formats.
      You can find it at www.irfanview.com;

      I enjoy stellarium, this is a really nice job!
      I agree it would be nice to have a real time jpg saving of the current view as xplanet does for instance.
      For example, it would be wonderfull to be able to call stellarium with command line argument only, without display, to generate a given jpg view. With little scripts one could update the wallpaper regularly.
      Personaly, I would be really interested to use the stellarium view as the background of my xplanet wallpaper, with real-time update of course ;))
