Im currently using Linux Mint 11 with fluxbox.
As im designing my desktop, i had a nice idea.
Not only show a background image, some transparent and undecorated terminals but also a video.
I currently use conky & idesk to get some information and style to my desktop.
When trying to have some video displayed, i came up with mplayer inside a terminal that is set to high transparency and use no borders,
but the problem is that the framebuffer wont work in a virtual tty.
Is there a program that could be used to display the video sequence?
If necessary it would be acceptable to instead use an animated gif (even tough i would dislike this "workaround").
I just try to get a desktop screen comparable to some of those sci-fi movies screens...
With system stats, some small videos running in a loop etc..
Thank you for your time
