KWaterSaver KDE-4 Version:
2010 by Stefan Baur http://kwatersaver.c0n.de/

Port of the former kde-3 version.

KGLWaterSaver KDE-3 Version:
2004 by Stefan Baur http://kwatersaver.c0n.de/

Make sure you have OpenGL libs/headers installed. (and of course Qt/Kde3.2)

Download, compile and install...
Go to the Control Panel and choose KGLWaterSaver, set it up to use your favourite Image or Desktop and fit the performance of your computer.
(Takes 10% CPU-Time at my Duron 700 / GeForce FX 5700 at: water_res of 128x128, 24 WaterCalcs, 64ms Delay Realtime)
(config dialog will probably [hopefully :] be more intuitive in following versions)

Hope you enjoy putting your desktop under water :)

Getting that many support and positive feedback, I enjoy presenting the refreshing version 0.6 of KGLWaterSaver, which comes with translation to german, spanish and brazilian portuguese as well as an extended configuration dialog (now with 3 effects to choose from)!

Have fun sinking your desktop.

Could you modify the ui file so we can compile it with QT Designer 3.2.x? If it compiles on my system, I can create a Mandrake 10.0 RPM package for you.

Right now i don't have designer 3.2 reachable
(just a up-to-date gentoo user :)

but maybe it's enough to simply change the src/kglwatersaverui.ui:
< UI version="3.3" stdsetdef="1" >
to
< UI version="3.2" stdsetdef="1" >
(without the spaces near the brakets of course)

hope this helps
or maybe try opening/importing the .ui in your designer version and then re-save it.

edit the src/kglwatersaverui.ui.
First line change 3.3 to 3.2.
works fine.

well, on the static screenshots you don't see too much - it's more impressive when running :)
