Komorebi is an Animated/Parallax Wallpaper App for Ubuntu

Parallax effects react to your mouse

Looking for parallax wallpaper, animated wallpapers,or a cute clock wallpaper for Ubuntu ― why not combine them all inone stunning background?

That’s what new wallpaper app Komorebi does.

Komorebi Wallpaper App

Developer Abe Masri recently got in touch to tell me about a new wallpaper app thathe’s built forlinux desktops (specifically for his KedOS Linux distribution , but it runs just dandy on Ubuntu).

It’s called Komorebi and is background manager that offers fully customizable backgrounds that can be tweaked at any time, A range of wallpapers are includedby default, and range from a parallax starry night skythat reacts to the movement of your mouse, tosimple linear gradients.

Your background also doubles up as a clock, as time and date information is overlaid on the background. If you’re feeling super geeky you can also choose to see basic system information, including live CPU and RAM load data.

It’s early days for the app, but it’s already pretty impressive, as this video shows:

Komorebi is able to:

Display static backgrounds Show time and date Display simple system info (RAM, CPU) Animate over time Respond to mouse movement Supports custom creations Download & Install Komorebi Wallpaper App

Komorebi wallpaper manager is free, open-source software and is available to download and install on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and up.

Download Komorebi from Github

Once installation has complete launch the ‘Komorebi’ app from the Unity Dash:

The wallpaper will replace your existing desktop immediately. To quit the app and return to your normal desktop press Alt + F2 and enter:

killall komorebi Things to keep in mind

As with other livewallpaper apps for Ubuntu, you’re essentially switchinga usable desktop space for a stylish one. When Komorebi is running you can’t access or place shortcuts, files and folders directly on thedesktop (you can still access them through your file manager, though) and you won’t get a right-click menu, either.

Parallax/animated wallpapers do use more system resources thana static PNG. Keepthis in mind if you plan to run this app on a laptop as more load means less battery life.

Finally, this app, while pretty nifty,is not super n00b-friendly . If you’re uncomfortable or unaccustomedto editing files you may preferto use a different sort of app, likeWallch,Himawaripy orLiveWallpaper.

Changing the background

Open the ‘ koborebi.prop ‘ file in your ~/Home folder and edit the second line with the directory nameof the background you want to use.

You can see the directory names in the screenshot above, and you enter them exactly as they appear.

So, if you wanted to set cloudy forest as your desktop background you would edit the prop file listed above using Gedit (or another text editor) to addthe corresponding directory on line 2:

1. [KomorebiProperties]
2. BackgroundName=cloudy_forest
3. ShowInfoBox=false
4. DarkInfoBox=false

Creating a custom configuration

You can customise any of the included wallpapers by changingthefont, sizing and spacing, or animation values in the .config files located in /System/Resources/Komorebi/ .You’ll need to be root to edit these files.

A l tutorial that explains how to create and customize wallpapers for Komorebi can be found on line. As you’ll see, it’snot super straightforward, but not too difficult to wrestle with either.

If you create a particularly neat configuration do share a link to it below.
