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.
