Description:

PortalView delivers real-time wallpaper, on your Linux based desktop, from thousands of webcams and weather sites worldwide. Launch this simple Python program on the boot or with a click to watch the sun set over the Mediterranean or Old Faithful erupt in Yellowstone Park.

Automatic updating allows you to monitor your local webcam or road conditions without keeping a resource-hungry browser open. Doppler and Satellite maps keep you informed of approaching weather. World Sunlight maps (Earthlights) include rectangular, hemispheric and moon phase views.

Includes scores of international webcams and weather maps to start with, then customize with your favorites. Supports .jpg, .gif and .png image formats.
