There’s a simple tool to replace your boring default wallpaper with a completely animated OpenGL wallpaper. It’s Android style live wallpaper on Ubuntu Desktop.

It only contains a few wallpapers so far. While it’s under developing, it continues adding new wallpapers.


To install this tool on Ubuntu:

There’s a ppa repository that contains stable packages for Ubuntu 13.04 Raring, 12.10 Quantal, 12.04 Precise and Linux Mint 15, 14, 13.

To add the ppa, press Ctrl+Alt+T, copy and paste below command into terminal and hit run:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:fyrmir/livewallpaper-stable

Then update via command:

sudo apt-get update

Finally install the tool:

sudo apt-get install livewallpaper livewallpaper-config livewallpaper-indicator

Once installed, open Livewallpaper Config from Unity Dash.
