All wallpapers, screensavers and other bling is outside of Mint scope all of this is done by outside volunteers and there is no reason to use up Mint volunteers to maintain such a list that will pretty much always be outdated anyway.
@Hammer459, this has already been done but outdated and not done with html5
check out the link:
This is what I am talking about, they come with a list of live wallpapers users can use, much like picking a wallpaper from the ones mint supplies,
Another link how to do this in mint:
What I am talking about is pretty much the same thing but create the live wallpapers (animated wallpapers) with html5 instead like screensavers can be done and mdm themes can be done.
The reasoning for this would be to open it up more for artist to create a lot of them to give a better variety.
Hope this clears it up.
If someone wanted a specific animation then they would have to create it to have their own artwork just like others have done with mdm themes but just changing the main background image to their own and some have done with ones I made in the past.
@remoulder, this is for linux mint not necessarily cinnamon and not mdm
I make mdm themes that could be ported for this purpose, That's what I meant by that, this is an idea for screen backgrounds on the desktop, instead of choosing a wallpaper you could choose a live wallpaper instead that would coded in html5, this could be used in any linux mint version, we were talking about this is when mdm first came out to also make live wallpapers in html5 for the desktop background, much like the html5 screensavers mint added into their desktop versions now also.
Just would be a nice add on in the future.
This is an ideas area for the linuxmint distro and it's websites, cinnamon and mdm are separate projects that have their own sites. Ideas for mdm go at https://github.com/linuxmint/mdm.
