Bootsplash and Login Screen as Desktop Background in Ubuntu

Today I tried wallpaper_daemon, I liked it. It make the desktop, bootslash, and login screen to be same. In running mode of the script, if we change the background of the desktop, it will change the background of bootspash and login screen to be same. And after stopping(ctrl+c) the script if we change the desktop background, there will be no change on other backgrounds.

To get the effect, here are some simple steps to follow:

Step 1:

Download the script file from here

Step 2:

Extract the wallpaper_daemon.py

Step 3:

The script is depend on the imagemagik, so install it by typing below instruction on terminal
sudo apt-get install imagemagick

Step 4:

In terminal change directory location where you had extracted the wallpaper_daemon.py. And the install the script by typing
./wallpaper_daemon.py –install

Step 5:

Add wallpaper_daemon.py to startup programms from
System > Preferences > Startup Application

Step 6:

Restart the system

Step 7:

Now it is time to see the effect, change the background of desktop.

Step 8:

In terminal type
sudo xsplash
which will show you bootsflash, and to come out from there press ESC key.

If you want to remove the effect. Then steps goes like this,

step 1:

Remove wallpaper_daemon.py from the startup programs

Step 2:

Extract your backup file located at /usr/share/images/xsplash

Step 3:

Copy bg_2560x1600.jpg from the extracted drectory and replace it into /usr/share/images/xsplash

Step 4:

Restart the system
