Watch the World on Your Linux Desktop
Screenshots of Live Desktop - Wallpaper updates at regular intervals
PortalView is a simple Python program which allows you to enjoy real-time wallpaper, on your Linux based desktop, from thousands of webcams and weather sites worldwide. Launch with a click to watch the sun set over the Mediterranean or Old Faithful erupt in Yellowstone Park.
Automatic updating allows you to monitor your local webcam or road conditions without keeping a resource-hungry browser open. Doppler and Satellite maps keep you informed of approaching weather. World Sunlight maps (Earthlights) include rectangular, hemispheric and moon phase views.
Includes scores of international webcams and weather maps to start with, then customize with your favorites. Supports .jpg, .gif and .png image formats.
PortalView works with the most popular Graphical Desktop Environments including KDE, Unity and Gnome 2 & 3. It should work with most distros, including Ubuntu, Mint, Fedora, Suse and more.
