Description:

Shader Wallpaper is a KDE/Plasma Wallpaper Plugin that allows you to run shaders as your wallpaper.


Video of 1.2 using iGPU (and kvantum) in VirtualBox: https://streamable.com/1g7muc

Video of 1.0: https://streamable.com/yeqam9

I'll probably maintain it on Github principally for issues/PR but I'll try my best to maintain both, if anything contact me on twitter.

Github: https://github.com/y4my4my4m/kde-shader-wallpaper
Opencode: https://www.opencode.net/y4my4my4m/kde-shader-wallpaper

Roadmap:
Version 1.0 - Simply load shaders
Version 1.1 - File Dialog added
Version 1.2 - iGPU fix
Version 1.3 - 70 new shaders + autolisting
Version 2.0-alpha - GUI customization of wallpaper & load from file or shadertoy.com
Version 2.0.1-alpha - Breaking bug fix regarding the pause/fullscreen feature(current version)

Notes:
- Performance may vary depending of your specs, but it's actually not all that resource intensive, depends on the shader too.

9 thanks you for this amazing plugin!
I dont understand why UI so "random" (it display some random parameters from code) and iTime scroll resize itself randomly...

I added my own shader as wallpaper for this KDE Shader Wallpaper plugin https://www.pling.com/p/1505365

Very cool, feel free to send a pull request on Github if you'd like to see your shader added :)

The UI showing random values is because it's looking for Vec3 values and variables in the shader code and tries to display them in the UI so you can modify it. Doesn't work so well on some shaders, but on others it allows for recoloring and other fun stuff like that.

The iTime scroll resize, it seems that KDE's shader module simply crashes a lot (or restarts).

I'm still working on improvements on this plugin, but one thing I found that helps with the crashes is ever so often run this command: `vblank_mode=0 kwin_x11 --replace &` when I find the shader wallpaper is acting wonky or my system seems slowed down.

10 Awsome. Is there any way to just select a random shader? I'd love some variation

That shouldn't be too hard yes.

What did you have in mind? Should it randomize every-time KDE restart? Or timer based?

(Of course it would be an on/off checkbox option though)

Let me know what you had in mind and I'll try to implement it!

I'm glad you like it!

There's still more I want to do with this shader. Eventually I want to create custom shaders specifically for KDE desktop that will react with the windows on the screen, etc.

Stay tuned! :)

9 Gotta say this is so cool
Excellent choice for shaders included out of the box

But I have found a bug
since v2.0 the shader pauses when I minimize my windows
sorry to drop this on you when you just fixed a bug

But I must commend you on the performance

Am I doing something wrong? I downloaded and installed. I can pick an animation and it starts running. After I hit "apply" and exit the wallpaper screen the animation stops running. As soon as I open the wallpaper screen again it will start again. It only runs as long as I have the wallpaper applet open.

Sorry for the delay, there was a bug in the 2.0alpha in regards to stop on fullscreen. I've uploaded a fixed version now.

Cheers!

8 It's working better than expected. Consumes an acceptable amount of resources for a desktop PC.

10 Hey, man awesome job! can you also add ps3 blue waves loop? Also i should say, sometimes when I right click on the desktop while options are open it crashes and returns back to start of the loop but its rather rare.

Thanks for the feedback. I'll see if I can find the ps3 waves. Maybe I could export the one that retroarch is using... I'll message back here if I can make it work.

For the crash, it's still an early build but I'll see what I can do. Could you share your specs?
