AMOR – a creature for your desktop
Note that AMOR will only work with some window managers. Both KWin (the KDE window manager) and Metacity (a GTK2 window manager) are supported.
AMOR is a nice toy which is absolutely senseless. It displays a tiny figure on your desktop, running on top of your windows or falling down to the bottom. It is a KDE application, but it should be no problem to use it in Gnome
Install AMOR in Ubuntu
If you want to install use the following command
sudo aptitude install amor
This will complete the installation
You need to activate AMOR for this go to Applications--->Others--->AMOR

Hmmm, I had always heard it called “Amusing Misuse of Resources.”
I second Argotnaut. I’m glad you covered it though, I’ve always been a fan.
I remember a long time ago, when I was still using windows 98, I had a similar program with a little sheep. This technology is nothing new and I also agree that it is a waste of resources
Yeah, the article is incorrect. AMOR actually stands for “Amusing Misuse of Resources” as Argotnaut said.
AMOR is love in portuguese language
Wait, so I can’t get Bonzi Buddy on Linux??? 😉
“Inutile et donc indispensable”
(=> useless and by the fact, needed)
How do I install this on Xenial Xerus (16.04 LTS)? `sudo apt install amor` doesn’t work, and `sudo aptitude install amor` doesn’t work either, neither can locate the package.
