Now to setting up elementary OS with terminal background/wallpaper. Copy/paste this command;
sudo apt install guake
You can now launch Guake from Applications —> System Tools —> Guake Terminal.
[F12] shows the Guake on/off so you can always come back to your normal Desktop. Right click on Guake and choose Preferences. Max out Height and Width. Don’t choose Fullscreen as it will cover the upper panel. You may want to play around with Appearance as well.
When you are done setting it up. Go to elementary OS System Settings —> Applications —> Startup. Add
to the startup. If you want bashtop to start automatically use this command instead:
The application you need for this is called Desktop Folder and can be found in the AppCenter or you can copy/paste this command;
sudo apt install com.github.spheras.desktopfolder
You’ll find Desktop Folder in Applications —> Accessories. When you start Desktop Folder it will immediately enable your Desktop, so any links in your Desktop folder will be visible on your Desktop.
If you want add a panel or two, simple right click on your Desktop and choose New —> Panel or Link to Panel which give an option to choose and existing directory eg. your Documents folder. It’s possible to change the color and transparency of your Panels if you like. Or change size of the Panel(s).
Now click on the “Settings” (right top) of Monitor and enable Show an indicator. If you want it to start in the background enable that as well. You may want to add com.github.stsdc.monitor to Startup if you want it displayed automatically when starting the computer on (settings —> Applications —> Startup).
This guide will show you how to install run live wallpapers on elementary OS. NOTE: If you are low on RAM it’s no good idea with live wallpaper and if you’re a gamer make sure you have “gamemode” installed which you can find here.
