			   --- Penguineyes v0.10 ---

Penguineyes is a replacement for the Xeyes program. Simply put -- penguineyes
puts a character in the corner of your desktop, following the mouse with its
eyes, there are several default characters, including the one and only Tuxedo
T. Penguin, but you can also easily(??) create your own.

See the file 'INSTALL' for instructions on how to make and install penguineyes.

Right click to get a menu, left click to drag, and middle click/drag resizes
(holding down shift will resize but keep the ratio, and the mouse wheel will
also resize).  When running as a GNOME applet, you can get the menu by
selecting 'Properties...' from the right-click menu.  

You can specify the theme, geometry, redraw rate (between 5 and 60, the
default is 24) from the command line, as well as doing other funky stuff, type
'penguineyes -?' for more details.

If you want to make your own themes, read the THEMES file.

If you have any decent themes for it, mail me them (or better, mail me an URL
for them) at the address below. I'm only including themes that are copyleft
friendly, for obvious reasons, but may put 'theme packs' on the web site if
I get enough and can be bothered. Patches/ideas are always welcome.

Tux, as you should know, was drawn by Larry Ewing, using the GIMP. The Dust
Puppy is from User Friendly (http://www.userfriendly.org), drawn by Illiad.
The (nameless??) Gnu is the logo of the GNU foundation (http://www.gnu.org).
Linus Torvalds was created by ... um ... Mr and Mrs Torvalds. Evil Tux and
robopenguin are part of the ongoing war between the penguins of the earth, and
the Evil Empire. Robopenguin is available for weddings, barmitzbahs and
political assassinations.
