Animated wallpaper


Does anybody know of an application that will allow animated gifs or motion images as a wallpaper? There are a few apps out there for windows that allows screensavers or animated gifs to be written directly to the wallpaper. Even winamp has the visualation that is displayed as the wallpaper when a song is playing.

Try adding -root when running xscreensaver.
for instance

/usr/X11R6/lib/xscreensaver/xmatrix -root

It will run as the wallpaper
