Lot of great stuff in this thread.

Anyone got a good workflow for making their own, and want to share their wisdom?

Venam, the one that you posted is especially nice. Here, take my screenshot as a gift.

Hey venam, you have a link to the flower tile? The old links are dead.

I dumped all the tiles I had on my drive:

https://dump.uninformativ.de/v/b287557057/

Note that this link expires in three months. But there’s a link to a ZIP at the bottom of the page, so it’s easy for you to grab them all and maybe mirror them somewhere.

@ramiferous: The flower is this one: https://dump.uninformativ.de/v/b28755705...er/635.png – “thayer” indicates they’re from Thayer Williams. Not sure if he made them or just posted them.

One of those things that started out as a “simple shell script” and has now reached the point where you probably want to rewrite it in another language: https://www.uninformativ.de/git/bin-pub/...index.html

There's an Xorg bitmap (xbm) editor, I forget the name of it. I found some old scrots where I had hooked it up to a script to preview the bg on every edit. Only useful for monochrome bg's tho: https://imgur.com/a/YVgHNt4

script was stupid simple, something like:

Code:
while inotifywait -e close_write ~/out.bmp; do

    convert out.bmp /tmp/result.png
    # convert /tmp/result.png -resize 140% /tmp/result.png
    feh --bg-tile /tmp/result.png
done

Nice, and this script would work well with other programs such as pixelorama which is quite nice. This is perfect, thanks!

What kind of wallpaper are you using? Are tiling wallpapers still rocking your world?
Share your collection or links we've missed out on.

I love tiling wallpapers. Most of them have a certain aesthetic that truly appeals to me. Right now I'm using this one: [Image: 3d_tile.png]

I have a folder full of Lain-related gifs, some of them work well as tiling wallpapers (especially those prefixed with `bg`). I've dumped it here: http://fixedpoints.zapto.org/lain

I heard 10x developers are using just Black background. I don't know if it's true or not, but it looks bad ass, though not original.
I use #102030 mainly because I use Black for screen locker, and I want to know at a glance if my screen is locked (black) or if I just have nothing open at the desktop.
With tiling wm you rarely see your background anyway, at least if you don't also use transparency.

This is excellent!

EDIT: How can I download them all at once? is there a curl or wget command that will fetch them all?

(Answered in DM, but might as well put it here too)
I made a tarball which contains all the files.

My wallpaper: #1a2633
It's actually my base00 color.

I never see my wallpaper, so that's why I don't have one.

Thought these looked cool, didn't know what "Lain" was, checked wikipedia. Found my next anime, very nice.

Can someone please tell me how to set the root background using .xpm tiles?

With xsetroot -bitmap, which most likely is already installed on your system. See the manpage for more options.

Edit: Sorry about that, I mixed up two different file formats

xsetroot -bitmap actually set the background to .bpm files, not .xpm files.
I have no idea how to set background to .xpm files directly. Better you convert it to .png first and then use feh(1).
