Using a Screensaver as Desktop Background

I found this on a Mac OS site. It allows you to use your screensaver as your desktop background:

  • Open the Terminal app.
  • Type (all on one line): /System/Library/Frameworks/Screensaver.framework/
    Resources/ScreenSaverEngine.app/Contents/MacOS/ScreenSaverEngine -background &
  • Hit enter.
  • Terminal will return with the process ID
  • If you want to stop the screensaver background, in the Terminal, type kill followed by the proces ID.
