LXer: Set your IP as Wallpaper with convert and feh

Published at LXer:

Today @ work we had a crashed PC. The PC served as a wall monitor to show the call central display via remote desktop. They said to me: Go fix it, no matter how you do it, fix it!. So I installed ubuntu, but the pc on win2k was called sparky. They vnc'd into it just by typing sparky. Now for some strange reason that doesn't work anymore, and I did not had time to fix it. So I made a script that sets the IP as wallpaper so that they can type that in ultravnc. (Later I thought that it would be better to auto-start uVNC to the central at login, but that did not came up on my mind earlier.) (And even later I discovered the /etc/hostname file was empty, and after I set that with 'sparky' it worked again...)
