[-visual visual] [-delay microseconds] [-squares num] [-resolution num]

The gflux program draws a colourfull animated rippling square rotating
in 3D space.
gflux accepts the following options:
-window Draw on a newly-created window. This is the default.
-root Draw on the root window.
Install a private colormap for the window.
Specify which visual to use. Legal values are the name of a
visual class, or the id number (decimal or hex) of a specific
Specifies the size of the grid in squares. default 19
Specifies the wireframe detail of the squares. default 4
Specifies the draw method: wireframe; solid (meaning a solid
colored surface); light (same as solid, but with lighting
effects); checker (a texture-mapped checkerboard pattern); or
grab (meaning grab an image to manipulate.)
When grabbing images, the image will be grabbed from the por‐
tion of the screen underlying the window, or from the system's
video input, or from a random file on disk, as indicated by the
grabDesktopImages, grabVideoFrames, and chooseRandomImages
options in the ~/.xscreensaver file; see xscreensaver-demo(1)
for more details.
Same as "-mode wire".
0 for smooth shading 1 for flat. default 0
Specifies speed of ripples flowing over the surface. default
-rotationx num -rotationy num -rotationz num
Specifies the speed of rotation of the surface in these axis
Specifies the number of ripple centres at any one time. Values
should be greater than 1. default 3
Specifies the duration of a ripple centre. after this they
fade away to be reborn elsewhere with a different frequency.
Specifies the height of ripples on the surface. default 1.0
Specifies the maximum frequency of ripples. default 3.0
Specifies the size of the viewport. Smaller values fill the
screen with rippling surface. default 1.0
How long to pause between frames. Default is 20000, or 0.02
-fps Display the current frame rate, CPU load, and polygon count.
DISPLAY to get the default host and display number.
to get the name of a resource file that overrides the global
resources stored in the RESOURCE_MANAGER property.
