I would love to. but I don't have the time. I was going to work on a better background but I think camera movement is what I'm going to do next. - Jun 12 2012
did you install build-essential kdebase-workspace-dev libqt4-opengl-dev cmake? - Jun 04 2012
did you install cmake? - Jun 04 2012
well not yet. but hopefully.
Thanks. - Mar 19 2012
It means a lot, thanks. - Jan 07 2012
Well it is done. I fell bad because I did this so quick and someone else has ask for a remora attached to the shark. I have had no success. But your idea looks good. Thanks - Jan 03 2012
Thanks for the positive feed back. I could add that in no time. All see what i can do. - Jan 02 2012
You are welcome, I'm glad you like it. - Dec 08 2011
Have you try to install KOceanSaver since I converted it to cmake. It should work for you now. - Dec 05 2011
Added to source now. - Nov 30 2011
You are right it is QT 4.8 not KDE 4.8. They removed GLU intentionally. Here is the link.
https://bugreports.qt.nokia.com/browse/QTSDK-1022

So just add

#include <GL/glu.h>

in ocean.cpp and it should work fine. I will make changes to source soon. Thanks.

Could it be that kde 4.8 is beta? - Nov 28 2011
Sorry for spelling :( and sorry, I have no idea. I will look and see if I can find anything but if you find something please let me know. Were you able to get version 0.4 to work? if so it may be something with cmake. - Nov 28 2011
did you install package "kdebase-workspace-dev" and "libqt4-opengl-dev"? OpenSUSE may have a little diffident naming standers. - Nov 28 2011
Starting to work on it again. New things

1. changed it to cmake now (sould compile on any system now)
2. changed my time basted movement (much faster now)
3. Working on adding Setting Dialog.
4. Adding new fish (remora attaches itself to shark)
5. Adding new fish (Manta ray)

Hope to have thing done soon. - Oct 03 2011
Sorry for getting back so late. What video card do you use? - Oct 03 2011
Yes that sounds right, but this is the error produced when it can not find data files.

terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::bad_alloc'
what(): std::bad_alloc
Aborted

I'm kinda new to programing for KDE may be that for different distro it need a different path. Can anyone else help or add anything that might help? - Apr 12 2010
Make sure you install it. It looks for data files in the installed location. if they are not there then it gives that error. - Apr 12 2010
Sorry for you problem. I'm not sure, the uninstall should do the trick. try reinstalling then uninstalling again. - Apr 12 2010
in kde 4.3 they broke off the opengl lib in to own package do a apt-cache search for opengl look for dev kde libs. install that and let me know. - Aug 31 2009
did you install kdebase-workspace-dev? - Aug 25 2009
No problem, I'm happy to help. But yes you do have to have kde 4 not kde 3 - Feb 21 2009
Did I not answer your question? - Feb 20 2009
Not sure what that means, I'm new to programing in Linux. I can compile it in and arc then you can to a "make install". I have an AMD64 and i386. - Feb 18 2009

Thanks for the feedback and complements. I have some questions for you if you don't mind helping me out a bit. The wave should be smooth.

If you have older hardware:
Change the line in ocean.cpp (L33)

Ocean::Ocean(QWidget *parent) : QGLWidget(QGLFormat(QGL::SampleBuffers|QGL::AlphaChannel|QGL::DirectRendering), parent)

to look like

Ocean::Ocean(QWidget *parent) : QGLWidget(parent)

see if that helps.

Now my questions. So you can see the back edges of the ocean and ocean floor. Do you see fog? I ask this because I can't see the edges in the 2 computers I use. The fog conceals the back edges. What video card do you use? I use Nvidia in both. Again Thanks you you help. - Feb 18 2009
I think slax uses kde3.X not kde4.x. This screen saver is for kde4.x.

Sorry - Feb 12 2009
what Linux distribution do you use? if kubuntu or debian then apt-get install kdebase-workspace-dev. if not search your distribution for a package named that and install it. - Feb 12 2009
Cool that would be grate. There are some pictures of fish in the data directory. Make low polygon models of the ones you like and let me know. Don't make the fins one sided They have to have two sides. My e-mail is down so just let me know when you get something with a comment. I will try to get my e-mail up soon.

Thanks a lot for your help. - Feb 09 2009
Good question. Sorry I did not explain this before.

1 download.
2 extract (tar -xzf "the file you downloaded")
3 change to the new directory (KOceanSaver)
4 run "qmake KOceanSaver.pro"
5 run "sudo make install"

That should do it.

Let me know if it works ok for you. Hope you enjoy it. - Feb 09 2009
Sorry just saw your comment. Thanks for to nice comment. And coming from someone working on the Amarok project is an honor. That is great project. I use it all the time. Keep up the good work. - Jan 15 2009
Yes I did call it "ocean saver" for a reason. I have something similar in mind. - Dec 31 2008
Thanks for the idea. You any good with a 3D modeler like blender? If so, would you be willing to help out with that? Not to put you on the spot but anyone is welcome to help. I will add your name to the list of credits. Just let me know. That goes for anyone who would like to help and contributes. - Dec 29 2008
And it runs slow. Edit Ocean.cpp line 34
Ocean::Ocean(QWidget *parent) : QGLWidget(QGLFormat(QGL::SampleBuffers|QGL::AlphaChannel|QGL::DirectRendering), parent)

to look like

Ocean::Ocean(QWidget *parent) : QGLWidget(parent)

Will speed thins up for you. - Dec 27 2008
config menu
resolution setting
opengl setting
number of each sea creature
sea creature swimming pattern

camera movement (swimming through seen)

Please let me know if you would like to see anything add or changed. - Dec 27 2008

When I make a DVD everything works nice but when I play the DVD I can not tab to next menu item. - Apr 30 2009
I'm not kidding this is some of the best work I have seen anywhere. We need to keep this guy out of work by donating as much as we would pay for something like this in a store. Just think if we could keep programmers like him paying his bills how many great programs they would produce for us. Please Please keep up the Great work and I will be supporting you. - Apr 29 2009
