Post your animated wallpapers!

Does not matter if you created them, as long as you have the right to distribute them!

I'll start, Just now created these 2 wallpapers (one animated and one static version), it's inspired by another wallpaper which source I'm not able to find.

Youtube demonstration: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=39titInaGQs

Static version: http://haikarainen.dotgeek.org/archbg.png


The cursor blinks repeatedly, and the logo flickers every 10th second. Seamless loop of course.

Re: Post your animated wallpapers!

While I'm at it I should post my other animated background I created some month ago. No static version on this one though.

Seamless loop on this as well. Basically a city overview from a rainy window.

Hehe I have no idea, I've googled and seen some alternatives for both Gnome and KDE, but not tested anything yet!
Anyway I know it is possible and youtube is full of examples of linux live wallpapers, I've been thinking of writing something myself if I can't get anything else working. If I do it will be for KDE.

This doesn't seem to work with KDE (at least with multiple monitors setup).

Found one for KDE that works, even if it's in some weird language I managed to download the tar and build it with no problems! Works like a charm!

Hehe good point. Still it's not internationally spoken.

No it's not, it was a mistake to call a language weird because I could not identify it. Polish isn't weird. Although it sounds kinda weird to me, who is swedish.

Can we please stay on topic? smile
