How make penguins visible in 'xpenguins'?

Post by linuxfluesterer » Tue Oct 10, 2017 23:55

Hallo guys.
Today I've heard about cairodock and xpenguins. I'm using Sabayon with Plasma 5.10.5 and Kernel 4.12.14, 6 virtual desktops on one 3440x1440 pix monitor. I am on latest upgrade status as date of 08/10/2017.
I like those penguins running on cairodock but I use a standard KDE control bar, which I won't change. So, in Sabayon repo I checked for xpenguins which are surprisingly offered. Then I installed the packages.
And now, after installing I started the fresh installed program in a user terminal with:

Code: Select all

xpenguins -t Penguins
but no penguin or other figure is running on my desktop. Where are those pets? In task manager I can see the process is active.
Any idea, why? Help is desired.
Thank you in advance.
