If you run KDE Plasma as a Desktop Environment:

If you roll with Hyprland compositer for Wayland, I think it can do wallpapers.

I know I've seen 8/16/32bit videogame/anime sprites on some peoples setups.

Sounds awful, I don't know why one would ever want that.

That being said:

Respect for sharing the tools even though you don't like them.

It warmed my nerd heart that the first thing I spotted in the mpvpaper repo was an animated Steins Gate background.

usually movement is minimal

If I want movement on my desktop, I'm gonna down a fifth of vodka.

Shameless self plug for a program I don't even use because as cool as shaders for a wallpaper sounded...I prefer a nice anime one XD. https://hg.sr.ht/~scoopta/glpaper

A wild buffet appears. Hello, I'm pretty good, hbu? That's kind of ironic, I saw this post and figured I'd comment in case someone was interested... didn't think it'd be you lol.

I use swww for wayland. I've seen quite a few others with similar setups as well, though I don't know how you do it on the Xorg side of things.

Are you new to Linux? I'm not trying to be mean, but I just want to know so it'll help me better approach the situation.

Wayland is a replacement for the X11 window system protocol and architecture with the aim to be easier to develop, extend, and maintain.

Wayland is the language (protocol) that applications can use to talk to a display server in order to make themselves visible and get input from the user (a person). A Wayland server is called a "compositor". Applications are Wayland clients.

oh so wayland is like a 'motherboard' for software

[-] maniac 1 points 10 months ago

Display servers like X11 and Wayland allow users to use GUI, without it you will be stuck using the TTY

Checkout Hidamari. Also if you are using GNOME , checkout Hanabi, a gnome extension

As in video wallpapers? Sure. KDE Plasma for one lets you install a bunch of wallpaper plugins ranging from video playback to live computed shaders and everything in between.

[-] [email protected] 2 points 10 months ago

There's a gnome extension for setting videos as your wallpaper
