    Can I use a HTML5-Site as Background?

    I just would like to ask if there is a possibility to use a HTML5 File as a Wallpaper, because I have this (not made by me) and I would love to use it as a Wallpaper.
    I user Ubuntu 12.10 with Unity, x64.

    Re: Can I use a HTML5-Site as Background?

    This is an experiment that you must do for yourself.

    Background images on 12.10 are stored in /usr/share/backgrounds/

    The script that runs the background image is found at /usr/share/gnome-background-properties/

    There you will find three scripts in xml format that can be edited by Gedit if it is launched using

    Code:
    gksudo gedit
    This is what you find in the script called ubuntu-wallpapers.xml

    <wallpapers>
    <wallpaper>
    <name>Ubuntu</name>
    <filename>/usr/share/backgrounds/warty-final-ubuntu.png</filename>
    <options>zoom</options>
    <pcolor>#2c001e</pcolor>
    <scolor>#2c001e</scolor>
    <shade_type>solid</shade_type>
    </wallpaper>
    </wallpapers>
    I guess that you would need to edit the file name line to point to the HTML document that you wish to load.

    Be careful. Gedit makes backup copies that become hidden files but are still read by the system and that can cause confusion to the system. You need to stop Gedit from making backup copies.

    Another way to try this is to open dconf Editor. It may be in the Dash if you have it installed. Open up the menu tree by clicking com, then canonical, then unity-greeter. At the top you will see the path to the background image file which you can edit.

    Regards.

    /usr/share/gnome-background-properties
    is the path

    Edit: Does not work, for whatever reason.
