xroach

The classic xroach game for X11: displays disgusting cockroaches on your root window. These creepy crawlies scamper around until they find a window to hide under. Whenever you move or iconify a window, the exposed beetles again scamper for cover.

Cleaned up for modern C compilers. Please be aware that this version still has some bugs and glitches.

Build

$ mkdir build
$ cd build/
$ cmake ..
$ make

In case you do not have an C++ compiler installed, instead run:

$ CXX=gcc cmake ..

To compile without CMake:

$ cc -I/usr/local/include/ -L/usr/local/lib/ -o xroach xroach.c -lm -lX11

Run

$ ./xroach -speed 2 -squish -rc brown -rgc yellowgreen
