Hey guys, remember when windows would crash, and if you tried to move a window it would leave trails of the window on the screen? Almost like a massive feedback loop!
Well, Linux doesn't do that and I sure miss it. So, I wrote this little script that would try to immitate that behavior in X!
What this does is very simple: It will take a screenshot of your desktop then set it as your root image.Code:#!/bin/bash while :; do echo -n "Taking shot ... " import -window root ~/images/screenshots/root.png qiv -x ~/images/screenshots/root.png echo "done." done
Unfortunately, 'import' is slow as a mofo and it's not quite like the real thing.
Here is a screenshot of me doing it on my system:
Keep in mind that there is only one window open in that picture.
