NAME
       3ddesk -	activates 3D-Desktop, a	3D desktop switcher.

SYNOPSIS
       3ddesk [	OPTIONS	]

DESCRIPTION
       3D  Desktop  is	an  OpenGL program for switching virtual desktops in a
       seamless	3-dimensional manner.  The default "visualization"  maps  your
       screen  onto  an	N-sided	"carousel" which is rotated to select the next
       screen.	When activated the current desktop appears to zoom out	so  as
       to  make	 your  desktop	appear to be actually in a 3d environment with
       your other desktops.

	      linear, viewmaster, priceisright,	flip, or random).

       --acquire[=#]
	      Grab images for all the desktops by cycling thru	(sleep	for  x
	      millisecs	at each	screen for refresh)

       --zoomspeed
	      How fast it zooms	in an out. Default is 45, must	be  between  1

       --version
	      Output version information and exit

SETUP
       3ddesk --acquire

       This starts the 3ddeskd server and acquires an image of	each  of  your
       virtual	desktops.   It	will  cycle through each desktop and return to
       your current.

USAGE
       Bind a key combination to /usr/bin/3ddesk  and  press  the  bound  key.
       This  will  bring  you into a 3d	environment where you choose your next
       desktop.	 If the	server hasn't been started it will try to start	it.

FILES
       /etc/3ddesktop/3ddesktop.conf
