Simple image glitcher suitable for producing nice looking i3lock backgrounds
$ git clone https://github.com/r00tman/corrupter $ cd corrupter && go build $ ./corrupter -h $ ./corrupter shots/example.png out.png && xdg-open out.png
If you're using an arch-based distro there are 2 AUR packages!
At the moment, you can only pass and output
.png images. But that's enough to work well with
corrupter only glitches the image for a cool background, you'd have to set up a lock script.
Example screenshot lock script:
#!/usr/bin/env bash tmpbg="/tmp/screen.png" scrot "$tmpbg"; corrupter "$tmpbg" "$tmpbg" i3lock -i "$tmpbg"; rm "$tmpbg"
The script above takes a screenshot with
scrot, distorts it with
corrupter, and then locks the screen using
If you're using
i3, you can create the script at
~/.lock, and then add a lock
bindsym $mod+Control+l exec --no-startup-id bash ./.lock
Alternatively, you can pre-corrupt an image and always use it (which is faster):
$ ./corrupter shots/example.png ~/.wallpaper.png
and then, in your
bindsym $mod+Control+l exec --no-startup-id i3lock -i ./.wallpaper.png
This method is slightly faster since the image processing is already done.
Default config is pretty heavy-handed. To get less disrupted images you may want to reduce blur and distortion:
$ ./corrupter -mag 1 -boffset 2 shots/example.png out.png && xdg-open out.png
