I've uploaded it: http://tom-f.org/code/stor/xglobe.tar.bz2

It contains an xglobe rpm (I couldn't download a tarball from the main site, the download was down (what a pun :) - so I took it from an old SuSE dvd) - extract & install it.

Afterwards, move to jpgs to a folder of your choice.
Then, install the command:
Right-click on you KDE Desktop, click on "Configure Desktop..." and then on "Advanced Options" - "Add...".
Enter this in the following dialog:

Name: xglobe
Comment: (leave emtpy)
Command: xglobe -dump -once -size %x,%y -nomarkers -pos "fixed 49.51 11.28" -mag 1.0 -label -labelpos -5-29 -nightmap -mapfile /home/tux/xglobe/earth_2400.jpg -nightmapfile /home/tux/xglobe/Night_le_huge.jpg -stars && mv xglobe-dump.bmp %f
Preview cmd: xglobe -nomarkers -nolabel -dump -once -size %x,%y && mv xglobe-dump.bmp %f
Executable: xglobe
Refresh time: 9 min (or else :)

...of course you'll have to change the path to the map files and -if you want- your position

I got the map files from various sites on the internet and don't remember them any more - sorry. - Aug 20 2005

I see your point. Do you think they are too big, or is the color too strong?

(I'd change the colors, but getting someone else's opinion first would be good :) - Aug 15 2005

If you mean mine (and the desktop screenshot) - it is generated by xlobe, with a custom day & nightmap. If you want the files, tell me :) - Aug 15 2005
