Use a screensaver as a Desktop Wallpaper!

Desktop ScreenSaver
Don’t believe me? Prashanth Ellina tells you how!

Here are the instructions available on his website:

    To stop Nautilus for drawing the desktop by default:
    gconftool-2 --type bool --set /apps/nautilus/preferences/show_desktop false
    Get the xscreensaver (matrix in this case) to draw itself on the desktop
    /usr/lib/xscreensaver/glmatrix -root
    You can also get the animation working everytime u log in by typing the following instructions:
    vi ~/.config/autostart/glmatrix.desktop - use your favorite text editor to open the file
    [Desktop Entry]
    Name=No name
    Name[en_IN]=Desktop matrix
    Exec=/usr/lib/xscreensaver/glmatrix -root

    If you want to revert to your old desktop setting:
    gconftool-2 --type bool --set /apps/nautilus/preferences/show_desktop true && nautilus
    Awesome Tip! Major Thanks to Prashanth for putting up the original article
