Lighting Animated (Skydome)
Compiz Themes
Description:

This is my first contribution to gnome-look so don't get angry at me if I do something wrong. This is a lighting skydome that I made a while ago so I decided to upload it. Make sure to turn on "Animate Skydome" so it works right.

Sorry everyone, I haven't checked on this site in a long time so I didn't read any of the comments or messages you all sent. I re-uploaded the image on to mediafire but from an account this time :)
If the link goes bad again just message me (I finally turned on the email alerts so I will actually read your messages this time :P) and I will try to find another hosting site but the link should be fine.

Hope you enjoy it!

Take this thing down or move it to where it can be downloaded. That endless loop of bullsh** from mediafire isnt fun for dialup users.

I saw some people weren't really sure how to install this so here's how.

1.)Download the .png image and put it anywhere you like for safe keeping.

2.)Go to compizconfig settings manager. If you don't have it you can type in "compiz" into the software center and pull it up for download.

3.)Once you've opened compizdonfig settings manager go to desktop cube, then appearance, now check mark the area that says skydome and find your image with the browse option just below. Now that you have your image up you will want to check animate skydome.

That should be it.

Open Compiz Settings Manager. Go to Desktop Cube and click on the Appearance tab. You'll see the Skydome settings towards the bottom. Make sure you check the boxes and there's a browsing window to choose your image. FYI, you can use anything as long as it's at or near the same resolution as your monitor-it can be jpg or png as I recall. Enjoy!

i tried to use this skydome, but it's not moving. when 'Animate Skydome' wasn't checked it stretched the picture, when I checked it, it looked good, but it still didn't move. animated skydome should move, right?:)

animated means you can spin around in it like a 3d environment instead of it sitting static in one spot I think - I wish they would call this Panorama not Animated for it is not animated

for ubuntu goto system>preferences>advanced desktop settings(if it is not there install it from synaptic)

double click desktop cube>skydome
check both skydome and animation and browse to this file.

ps: if the background is white:

The picture size may not exceed the maximum texture size your graphic card is capable of. You can find the max. texture size this way:
Code:

xvinfo | grep max

So if the answer is 1024 you need to resize a picture of 2048x1024 to 1024x512 in order to use it as a skydome picture.

I had the white background problem as well. This post helped me:

http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=2135334&postcount=5

mine returned 1920x1088, so I opened up the file in the GIMP and resized its width to 1920 with the height locked in constant ratio (400 something IIRC). Using the new image worked perfectly.
