Set the desktop wallpaper to a word cloud of the most resource-hungry processes

process-wallpaper

Python and shell scripts which set your wallpaper to a wordcloud of the most resource-intensive processes presently running.

Depenendencies

  • python3
  • gsettings (comes preinstalled with GNOME) or feh (supported by many Linux distributions).

If neither gsettings not feh are supported by your platform, you can still set wallpaper.png as your wallpaper manually.

Setup

  • Set the resolution of your display in config.json
  • Use the following commands
cd /path/to/script/directory
chmod +x setup.sh
./setup.sh

Use

The wallpaper is updated every time updateWallpaper.sh is run. To trigger the update every minute, append the following line to crontab -e:

* * * * * cd /path/to/script/directory && ./updateWallpaper.sh > /tmp/wallpaper.log 2>&1
