hyprpaper is a blazing fast Wayland wallpaper utility with IPC controls.
Currently this package has no use flags.
emerge --ask gui-apps/hyprpaper
For a simple wallpaper that loads when Hyprland starts, place
exec-once=hyprpaper into the Hyprland config file. Then create
~/.config/hypr/hyprpaper.conf with the following lines:
ipc = off
preload = /home/username/Pictures/wallpaper.jpg
wallpaper = eDP-1, /home/username/Pictures/wallpaper.jpg
Replace eDP-1 to denote the monitor being used. This preloads wallpaper.jpg and sets it as the default wallpaper, while disabling IPC for the sake of battery life. Refer to the official documentation link above for more advanced configuration options. Use of ~ in the wallpaper file paths may cause issues, so it is safer to default to spelling out the full path.
For paths that contain spaces no quotes
" or escaping
\ needed, for example:
preload = /path/to/my bg.jpg
