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),
    plasmashell
    (comes with KDE) or
    feh
    (supported by many Linux distributions).
