Description

This program is not a production-quality screensaver.

This repository provides a basic Matrix-style screensaver which can be stopped by pressing Enter. Additionally, script matrix_screensaver_img allows images of this style to be generated e.g. for use as background images.

Matrix Screensaver Sample Screenshot

Note that this was mainly written for educatorial purposes. Today, it can serve as a quick 2D graphics test. The code contains use for some advanced Java features: Making a screenshot of the current display and changing the monitor's resolution.

Invocation

Start the screensaver with matrix_screensaver -c. If -c is left out, it attempts to change the screen resolution to 640x480 (for additional nostalgia...) while running the screensaver.

Start the image generation with matrix_screensaver_img to obtain file matrix-desktop.png. Note that it only works for single-monitor use cases.
