WallpaperFM converts your Last.Fm data into a really cool – and highly customizable – wallpaper.
Way too cool not to make part of my Quirky Wallpaper Series and share with the rest of you Ubuntu users!
If you want to try this out, open a terminal and paste each line.
- mkdir wallpaperfm
- cd wallpaperfm
- wget http://ledazibao.free.fr/wallpaperfm/wallpaperfm.py
- chmod a+x wallpaperfm.py
- ./wallpaperfm.py -u YOURLASTFMUSERNAME
This gives you the “basic” look.
The basic look is nice, but you can tweak it much further – and enable some really cool styles to boot!
Open a terminal and cd to /wallpaperfm (or whereever you have saved the .py file you wget’d above.)
./wallpaperfm.py -u YOUUSERNAME
Then add any of the following options that you see fit.
As such my command might look like this: –
./wallpaperfm.py -u joeysneddon -i 1440×900 -m collage -t overall
As well as the general options listed above, there are specific options for each “mode”.
You can change the size of the album covers from the default setting of 130×130.
for example: –
gives you album tiles 100×100.
You can specify how many album covers are used in the collage by using the following flag:
would use 60 album covers.
You can choose to display more than 7 albums in the Glass mode by also using the -n flag.
The size of the covers will decrease as you increase the number.
You can find more options on the official site @ http://ledazibao.free.fr/wallpaperfm
You can use this hack offline too, just use the -l flag.
