FAQ: Screensaver as Wallpaper in OSX

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Set your screensaver to what you want your background to be and type into terminal

Code:
/System/Library/Frameworks/ScreenSaver.framework/Resources/ScreenSaverEngine.app/Contents/MacOS/ScreenSaverEngine -background
That's it

If you want to make it easier to use, make a file ".profile" in your home folder. Put the following line into it

Code:
alias wall='/System/Library/Frameworks/ScreenSaver.framework/Resources/ScreenSaverEngine.app/Contents/MacOS/ScreenSaverEngine -background'
Next time you open terminal, you can simply type "wall" to get it to start.

Using the Spectrum screensaver and a transparent terminal makes hours of coding easier to do

Or download Wallsaver

I use Defcon Globe as my screensaver. AND The Matrix I don't use this at all, though; only to show off to people

It's annoying to keep using moving things as the desktop background. Plus, it takes a bit of extra horsepower (and therefore reduces battery life.)
