Use your favorite video as an animated background in Ubuntu | Howto
This is a gallery where you will find nature and landscape dreamscene loops, like animated Waterfalles, Mountains, Beaches, Cities and more, you can also use your favorite video`s. so, What about using videos as animated background in your ubuntu? (Videos are in .wmv format , to use them as a background first convert them to .avi or mpg format using ffmpeg)
Now, to add a video s as animated background you will need to install a script called a-desk.
1- First we need to have some dependecies installed for a-desk like Zenity, Mplayer, unrar and rar
sudo apt-get install zenity mplayer unrar rar
2- Now download a-desk and decompress it to your home directory or other location you want
3- Now you will have this folder (Screenshot bellow) ,enter into a-desk and install xwinwrapcvs.deb or xwinwrap64.deb (Double click on the file)
4- Now execute adesk.installer
Double CLICK’S on “a-desk-installer” and choose in which language and system (32 or 64 bit) you want to install a-desk
When the installation is finished you can start the script by a right click of your mouse and choose scripts–>a-desk
Now you can run the default video “Atomic-city” or choose the video you want to use as animated background, you can also choose other videos from a-desk author
I tested this script and worked fine for me, see my Video :
