NAME

spotlight - move spotlight around desktop

SYNOPSIS

spotlight [-display host:display.screen] [-foreground color] [-background color] [-window] [-root] [-mono] [-install] [-visual visual] [-delay usecs] [-duration secs] [-radius pix‐ els] [-fps]

DESCRIPTION

The spotlight program takes an image and exposes small sections of it as if through a wan‐ dering spotlight beam. The image that it manipulates will be grabbed from the portion of the screen underlying the window, or from the system's video input, or from a random file on disk, as indicated by the grabDesktopImages, grabVideoFrames, and chooseRandomImages options in the ~/.xscreensaver file; see xscreensaver-demo(1) for more details.

OPTIONS

spotlight accepts the following options: -window Draw on a newly-created window. This is the default. -root Draw on the root window. -mono If on a color display, pretend we're on a monochrome display. -install Install a private colormap for the window. -visual visual Specify which visual to use. Legal values are the name of a visual class, or the id number (decimal or hex) of a specific visual. -delay microseconds Slow it down. -duration seconds How long to run before loading a new image. Default 120 seconds. -radius pixels Radius of the spotlight in pixels. -fps Display the current frame rate and CPU load.

ENVIRONMENT

DISPLAY to get the default host and display number. XENVIRONMENT to get the name of a resource file that overrides the global resources stored in the RESOURCE_MANAGER property.
