Easy XSlpash Background Changer App

Notice: This post is more than a year old. It may be outdated.

Last November (has it been that long already!) we posted an article highlighting a script that automatically changed your XSplash background to that of your desktop wallpaper. It was very well received by readers here (and other blogs that posted it subsequently) so i’m pleased to report that the script has since received some rather awesome updates!

New Features
‘Xsplash background Settings’ – as it is now known – allows a user to conveniently change/set the following: –

  • Set the XSplash background to any image you choose
  • Sync it with your desktop wallpaper
  • revert it back to the original background

XBS now comes in a handy one-click install .deb file. Download it from the following link and double-click to install.

XBS can be launched from System > Preferences > Xsplash Background Settings.
