@jst_joe... It would be really cool if that png could be made into a revolving gif of the VSIDO Raptor wallpaper.  I do not know if this is even possible, but it would be awesome

@jst_joe

Debian Show Your Desktop

Thank you
I'm truly honored!

I'm sure I could rotate the logo part and keep the file size fairly small.
As a wall it would probably be huge.
I'll see what I can do when I get some time.

The view's not that bad you just have to punch the knothole out.

Lol jst_Joe

I'm glad someone else appreciates my avatar. VasyOne hates it  :D

What if you created the gif without the blue background? Then set the gif to be centered and all around it will be black. Is it even possible to have a live wallpaper like that?

^Is it just me or has my original post about your hair disappeared? ???
In any case the answer to the gif wallpaper is no on both counts.
Apparently windows and linux can't render animated wallpapers as anything more than a static image.
Don't know about mac I don't have one to test it on.
Good thought it would have made a really great wall.

^ Yeah, I realized that when I went back a page. :-[
Sorry about the animated wall, it was a really cool idea.

^ No worries, I knew it was a stretch since I had never seen one anywhere...

Thanks for looking into it

Don't give up so quickly!  I know there are some animated walls in KDE...

^ Thanks jedi, I didn't know that.
My big problem with almost all things KDE is a ton of dependencies.
To make it work on VSIDO would be up to VastOne.
I like things simple, guess I'm just getting old or lazy or both.

@jst_joe, KDE installed on my VSIDO as well as lwfitz.  It is up to version 4.11.3.  This is the first time in probably 10 years I've actually installed it, then left it in place!  It has come a long way.  Yes it has a lot of dependencies, but isn't to bad on memory or drive space for that matter.  All of that said, my main goto is still Fluxbox!  Just can't tear myself away from it.  However KDE has some super nice features in it's Plasma Desktop that have been a long time coming.  With a little perseverance you can get it to install and run smoothly and quickly on VSIDO.  I have to say that as far as eye-candy goes, KDE takes the cake!  (also I have a 4Gb GDDR5 dedicated VRAM GTX 660M nvidia card and 16Gb of sys memory with an SSD drive to top it all off.  So probably whatever I run will run really fast!!)

Back on topic, watched Prometheus again tonight after learning there is going to be a part 2 in 2015.  A bizarre bg I came across while checking it out...

Weird...I watched Prometheus again last night too.

Love the wall.  It reminds me of the Pastafarian "Touched by His Noodly Appendage" (a parody of Michelangelo's The Creation of Adam).
