Well you can use gifs or svgs with animation so it can be done
hi i am new to gnome-shell mailing list
i recently saw a video about the new android OS and it has a cool
feature that ins't available in any desktop environment as far
as i know.
it is called live wallpaper and it is really simple. the
your desktop become interactive(if you click on a button in the
the wallpaper shows some form of effect.
here is a video showing live wallpaper
what do you think about implementing this in gnome shell
i would like to hear your feedback
I know that it is possible, i wanted to hear about actually making
default or something which can be done with a few click.
an animated image and it is part of the default.
isn't that easy i think.
It shouldnt take too much programming, just detect the click event
and y then do what you want with that info to the svg. I dont really
the point in actually doing it but it wouldnt be too hard for anyone
(with a little googling).
I think that's what he's suggesting the developers should do. He's
asking for a feature - it's not a feature if you have to code it
Personally, I'd be happy with a nice user driedly GUI front end for
setting up xwinwrap to play certain videos or apps as my background,
while also displaying icons, but I think Matsuo's idea is nice too. At
the moment Gnome has, unless you're willing and able to devote a lot
of technical expertise to changing it yourself, far less visual flare
than other OS frotends, it'd be great to change that, not just to play
catch up but to offer more and cooler effects than other OSes, without
needing to be a technical wiz to enable it.
