process-wallpaper

Python and shell scripts which set your wallpaper to a wordcloud of the most resource-intensive processes presently running.

Depenendencies

  • python3
  • gsettings (comes preinstalled with GNOME) or feh (supported by many Linux distributions).

If neither gsettings not feh are supported by your platform, you can still set wallpaper.png as your wallpaper manually.

Setup

  • Clone this repo.
git clone https://github.com/anirudhajith/process-wallpaper.git
cd process-wallpaper
  • Set the resolution of your display in config.json
  • Install Python dependencies.
pip3 install -r requirements.txt --user
  • Run setup.sh
./setup.sh

Use

The wallpaper is updated every time updateWallpaper.sh is run. To trigger the update every minute, append the following line to crontab -e:

* * * * * cd /path/to/script/directory && ./updateWallpaper.sh > /tmp/wallpaper.log 2>&1

You can’t perform that action at this time.
