A wallpaper generator for gnome (and kde)
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.
python >= 3.6
For a new wallpaper from $HOME/Pictures/Wallpapers, run:
For a new wallpaper from reddit, run:
$ wallgen -t reddit
For more options, run:
$ wallgen -h
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
