Electric Sheep as your wallpaper (kind of)

Postby PhoenixKsE » Wed Apr 25, 2012 9:31 am

So I had heard about electricsheep and I just thought I would attempt to get it running as my background. As a noob this was quite an undertaking, but I managed, and learned something in the process. ^_^

This article helped a lot:

Just had to modify the script, removed '--mplayer' because it threw out an error with the new version of electricsheep. However, the script is working nicely, and it is very easy to edit to your liking. Check it out.

Pics added as well. Right now my opacity is set at 0.7 in the script, but it looks really nice at 1.0. Only problem is it will cover any icons, so make sure you set the opacity down if you have icons.

...covers widgets too.

If anyone has any ideas on how to get it behind icons and widgets, I'm all eyes. :mrgreen:

Oh, and by the way, I know my email is showing. Don't be annoying and spam me, just leave it alone please. Have a heart. :)
