    Thank you for your interest in xmountains. Its nice to see that people still find it interesting over 10 years after I wrote it. I'm afraid that the problems with the scrolling are because most X servers are not optimised for horizontal scrolling, it works better on some platforms than others.

    nice program but needs work
    Fix xmountains so I can relax to beautiful snow

    covered mountains smooth-scrolling across full screen,

    please. When I ran it, I noticed a number of bugs and

    it wouldn't smooth-scroll. This would be a very nice

    program if the bugs were worked out of it. Thanks

    for your work so far.
