A wallpaper generator for gnome (and kde)

Project description

WallGen - A random wallpaper generator


WallGen is a tool to generate wallpapers matching to your display configuration.


  • Needs a mutter based desktop, for example GNOME, because WallGen reads the display configurations from mutter's DBus service.



For a new wallpaper from $HOME/Pictures/Wallpapers, run:

$ wallgen

For a new wallpaper from reddit, run:

$ wallgen -t reddit

For more options, run:

$ wallgen -h

Advanced Usage

You can run WallGen as DBus service:

$ wallgen --dbus

After this every new execution of WallGen will use this service to create new wallpaper. With WallGen as DBus service you can start it also as monitor for display changes:

$ wallgen --monitor

Whenever the configuration of your displays changes WallGen generates a matching wallpaper for you.

To stop the DBus service and the monitor, run:

$ wallgen --quit
