Software: Desktop Friend To Amuse and Annoy

I was poking around the Package Manager over the weekend and found a cute little program that really doesn’t do much other than bounce around your screen, getting in the way.

The software is called AMOR, which stands for Amusing Misuse Of Resources

Once installed, you’ll find it, in the Games section of your Menu.

Once launched, all it does, is bounce around the screen, sitting on top of open windows, while making silly faces. There are several characters to choose from in the Options menu, that you get to by Right Clicking on it.

As the program was written for KDE Linux, the Tool tips function will not work because those libraries are not installed in Gnome based distributions. Everything else runs fine of course.

And here’s what it looks like running:

I of course, chose Tux, the Linux penguin. Tux pops around the screen, sitting on top of windows and generally making a nuisance  of himself, but it’s mindless fun.
