Easter eggs


hide | show
I thought this is just the right time of the year to search for "easter eggs" in gnome. So, I began searching google, asking the kind people of gnome-nl, trying to remember what I found out some time ago when I did the same research and found ... not really much. Though, I found some; Here they are:

Right click on the panel, click 'Panel info'. A dialog pops up. Now press three times the F key and you'll get Wanda the fish swimming on your desktop, above all the other windows! When you click the fish, it will respond by quickly swimming of your screen ... but she will return ;). It's kind of fun, but after a while it gets irritating :). To get rid of the fish, kill your gnome-panel. No worries, it will restart automatically.
There's another trick that does just the same thing (bringing wanda on your desk). Open the "Run ..." dialog (press Alt-F2), and type "free the fish" (without quotation marks) in the input field and press enter. There shee is again.
The run dialog is like the best place for easter eggs, so there's another one; type "gegls from outer space" in the dialog and press enter. An "Invaders" clone game will pop up on your screen and you can play it by moving wanda the fish with the arrows on your keyboard and shooting with the space button. It's not that easy; In the second level another wanda will become one of your enemies. Beware: it can be quite addictive :).



That's all, I couldn't find more of 'm :(. There where some nice things in Evolution before it became 2.x, like when you typed "why?" in the To: field when composing an e-mail etc, but they all seem to be gone (or replaced by others ?). If you know about more Gnome easter eggs, share them with us (post it as a comment ;) )!

Happy Easter !

BTW: Did you know you can create starters by dragging the icon of the application out of the "Run ..." dialog ? This is really handy :)!

BTW.2: I also read about some GDM (Gnome Display Manager) Easter Eggs, but I'm to lazy to try 'm out now, and it's not really gnome anyway ;). Google for 'm !

Hi,
also Zenity has a very nice easter egg. Run zenity with option --about from a shell, then, with the focus on zenity about box, type 'zen' :)

Hi,

I'm sorry for being intrusive in to your blog. But I am Melissa and I am a mother of two that is just trying to get out of an incredible financial debt. See my hubby is away in Iraq trying to protect this great country that we live in, and I am at home with our two kids telling bill collectors please be patiant. When my husband returns from war we will beable to catch up on our payments. We have already had are 2001 Ford repossessed from the bank, and are now down to a 83 buick that is rusted from front to back and the heater don't work, and tire tax is due in November.

I'm not asking for your pitty because we got our ownselfs into this mess but we would love you and thank you in our prayers if you would just keep this link on your blog for others to view.

God Bless You.

Hey, just looking around some blogs, seems a pretty nice platform you are using. I'm currently using Wordpress for a few of my sites but looking to change one of them over to a platform similar to yours as a trial run. Anything in particular you would recommend about it? Replica Watches
