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
Alternatively, you can use
go get -u github.com/r00tman/corrupter to install. Then, the binary will be at
$GOPATH is set).
If you're using an Arch-based distro, you can use one of the two AUR packages!
At the moment, you can only pass and output
.png images. But that's enough to work well with
corrupter only glitches the image for a cool background, you'd have to set up a lock script.
Example screenshot lock script:
#!/usr/bin/env bash tmpbg="/tmp/screen.png" scrot "$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 has been done beforehand.
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
