* Play QtOpenGL scene with mouse events and music

* Play Video
The main feature of each package is that each wallpaper contains information about the package itself, about the author and a brief description. Each package will work on different computers with the same plugin version. At the moment, the KDE Plasma support is implemented only, other DEs and operating systems will become available in future updates.
There are several demonstration packages available now. You can create your own and publish it on reddit community page.

# sudo pacman -S kdeclarative
Build and installing
Now when all the necessary packages are installed, you can proceed with the compilation and installation.
Unpack the downloaded archive. Go to the Open Wallpaper Plasma project directory and run the terminal. Now you should create a folder and enter it.
# mkdir build && cd build
Run CMake with the following parameters:
# cmake -D CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr ..
CMake can show an error if the system doesn’t have the necessary dependencies.
Start building the project:
# cmake --build .
if you have more than 2 CPU cores or threads you can write -- -jХ where X will be a number of cores/threads. Example: cmake --build. -- -j4
Read CMake output and if the compilation was successful, you can install a plugin in the system directory with the following command:
# sudo make install
Success! Now you can run a plugin in Plasma Desktop Settings. Attention: the plugin doesn’t have any packages included. See Examples above
