Description:

NOT MY CODE BUT IT WAS NOT LISTED SO I THOUGHT PEOPLE SHOULD KNOW ABOUT THIS.
This allows for newer kde to have animated desktops.

The only problem is when you have multiple desktops with multiple animated backgrounds you see alot of cpu load.

It would be great if someone could make a button plasmoid that could turn off and on the animated background for that one desktop.

Its such a good addon to KDE I hate to see it in its current state.

it is isnt fatal, but for some reason the first time you try to set it up plasdma-desktop crashes, then you have to it again, and it will crash a second time, but the third time it works.
I am using it on 64bit Kubuntu 14.04 and it works once you get past the two crashes.

I wish it was still in active development, sorry but the kde animated wall papers just are not the same.
Sure this is not as efficent but I can take any short video clip and make it my desktop,
I have not seen a way do it that with the current kde animated desktop.

Thanks!
I wish the developer would create his own kde-apps.org entry for this, this is something that kde has needed for a long time.

KDE from 4.10 onwards has native ability for animated/scripted wallpapers.
