If you found a 3D screensaver that you like, won’t it be nice if you can set it as your wallpaper?
The screenshots above show my desktop where I set the xscreensaver EndGame as my desktop.
- Gnome desktop
Here is how you can do it:
In your terminal:
gconftool-2 –type bool –set /apps/nautilus/preferences/show_desktop false
This will stop the Nautilus from drawing your desktop.
Your screen will now show the endgame screensaver. To resume back to your original desktop:
gconftool-2 -s /apps/nautilus/preferences/show_desktop -t bool true && nautilus
