Is Live Wallpaper available for Ubuntu?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 28, 2013
Android has a number of "Live Wallpaper" apps, which means wallpaper that moves in some way or another; sometimes interactive, sometimes responding when you change workspaces (examples).
Is something similar available for the desktop on Ubuntu (or indeed Linux in general)? I'm using 12.04 64-bit.
A live wallpaper?!
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 13, 2011
Guys! I'm very excited about this! I just wrote a simple program which generates random numbers and random spaces and keeps moving ( like one of those things you saw in the matrix and numerous other movies, but you always knew what a piece of crap! )
Anyway, I actually kept staring at the beautiful effect it created for at least a minute!
Guys, any idea how do I make this as wallpaper?! Like a live wallpaper with all the numbers running around in the background... I know I'd get fed up after a few hours but I think it'd be cool until such time
( Just in case you want to know the effect, try running the following piece of code after making your terminal font colour as green with a black background . But I hope you have a good processor.. or i think it may lag..)
/* This program will attempt to create a matrix type simulation */
using namespace std;
int i,x=0, nbr, spc;

Galaxy Live Wallpaper 11.04 not working
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 28, 2011
I installed the Galaxy Live Wallpaper for Compiz that was created by ilap, can enable it, and press super + f4 but it does not turn on. No options show under Compiz>live wallpaper>galaxy live wallpaper. Has anyone been able to get the Galaxy Live wallpaper running in 11.04? I had to go into the compiz unity settings to disable the super key from activating the unity launcher shortcuts. Any help would be awesome. Thanks!

I am trying to implement https://github.com/frankandrobot/GLWallpaperVideoDemo but this is 3 year old code. I didn't find any other tutorial. I am using eclipse on windows 7. I have searched on google and found that NDK-r7 versions and later can also be build on windows without using Cygwin. I have also followed this link How to play video as live wallpaper android?. I have generated .so files as well but when i try to install this in my device It is getting crashed. I have installed NDK also tried to replace latest FFMpeg libraries but no Luck! I wonder if someone could help me out of these? Error java.lang.RuntimeException: Unable to instantiate service frankandrobot.glwallpapervideodemo.com
Live Wallpaper reselection increases memory usage. How to stop this?
location: linuxexchange.com - date: October 3, 2012
I just realized that applying a live wallpaper once and then going back to live wallpaper selection, selecting the same wallpaper menu, changing its setting and then setting it as the wallpaper again increases the memory usage of the particular live wallpaper's process. The more we set it repeatedly,the more memory is used.
I tried releasing all resources and yet the same thing is happening. The cube live wallpaper sample has the same problem, as does many others. Since mine uses gif images(using movie.decodeStream()), the memory increase is much larger.
I guess its a problem with no cleaning the resources by the wallpaper service. Please advce if this can be done manually. I have tried : inputStream.close(), handler.removeCallbacks(Runnable), unregistered the sensors etc.
Been working on a simple wallpaper for 3 days day n night now. When everything gets fixed, it starts drinking memory. Any help would be highly appreciated.

Android Graphics: how to recreate look of Microbes live wallpaper?

Video Example here
I'm trying to recreate the look of Microbes live wallpaper for Android, developed by Samsung I believe. Graphics programming is not my forte though and I need some help to get started.

I'm assuming I can represent the microbes using sprites.
Warping shape: When microbes are stationary, they are rounder. But, when they move in a direction they become more oval shaped. Do I represent this with multiple sprite states? Additionally, microbes come in different sizes. Can I just scale from one base image?
Animation: Occasionally, the microbes wobble. So this would be transitioning from round to oval shaped sprite and back?
Colors: Do I have a separate sprite for each color type(blue, yellow, red, etc.) or have one base overlay and assign different colors dynamically? Also, sometimes they momentarily glow a little brighter than their base color, which makes me think some dynamic way of assigning colors would be better than static sprites. What is t
