cbd: dusk in the root window

cbd generates an image which is supposed to look like the time just after sunset. The image is rendered to the X root window (the desktop background). The images are generated algorithmically and vary slightly depending on the seed value.

cbd works out of the box with plain window managers such as fluxbox or afterstep. Bigger desktop environments may overlay the root window, this needs to be inhibited to make cbd visible. In the case of GNOME nautilus draws over the root window, but this can be changed by editing the show_desktop gconf entry.
