Asciiquarium is an aquarium/sea animation in ASCII art. It includes multicolored fish, a whale, and a fish-eating shark.
KDE Asciiquarium is a KDE screensaver based off of Kirk Baucom's FABULOUS asciiquarium program (http://www.robobunny.com/projects/asciiquarium/).
Or in other words, it's a simulation of an ocean scene, but using ASCII art instead.
NOTE This content is the KDE 3 version of the screensaver. I have not uploaded the KDE 4 port here because it is now included with KDE 4 in the kdeartwork module.
Note the screenshot preview will probably be a bit dark, view the full screenshot to see what it's more likely to look like.
Extract the tarball, and change to its directory (aasaver-0.3.2). In that directory, run the following:
make install (this may need run as root)
You will then be able to find Asciiquarium in the Miscellaneous category of the Screensaver Control Panel.
At this time the only option is the number of fish to have present.
Thanks to Maksim Orlovich for starting the project, and Kirk Baucom and Joan Stark for the asciiquarium program and ASCII Art.
