Currently, wallpapers are only available in the official Release ISO. This guide will show you how to make wallpaper available, so that the installation of your locally compiled ISO will have wallpaper available to add to your desktop.

Adding wallpapers

In the source directory go into \reactos\modules\wallpapers\ and add your own image.

In the same directory, find CMakeLists.txt

Open it in a Text Editor and add the following line:

add_cd_file(FILE ${CMAKE_CURRENT_SOURCE_DIR}/image-name.png DESTINATION reactos/Web/Wallpaper FOR all)

Where image-name.png is the name of your own image.

If you only want your own wallpaper, then use a # at the front of all the lines you wish to comment out (commenting out stops it being added to the compiled ISO).

Making wallpapers available

Windows

In your source directory, go into the reactos directory and find configure.cmd

Example: E:\ReactOS_Development\Source\reactos\configure.cmd

And in a text editor go to line 189, which should look like the line shown below (only the first part shown)

cmake -G %CMAKE_GENERATOR% -DENABLE_CCACHE:BOOL=0 -DCMAKE_TOOLCHAIN_FILE:FILEPATH=%MINGW_TOOCHAIN_FILE%

and add -DENABLE_WALLPAPERS=1 into the line, like so:

cmake -G %CMAKE_GENERATOR% -DENABLE_CCACHE:BOOL=0 -DENABLE_WALLPAPERS=1 -DCMAKE_TOOLCHAIN_FILE:FILEPATH=%MINGW_TOOCHAIN_FILE%

then save and compile.

Unix

In your source directory, go into the reactos directory and find configure.sh

Example: /home/RosBuild/source/reactos/configure.sh

And in a text editor go to line 52, which should look like the line shown below (only the first part shown)

cmake -G "$CMAKE_GENERATOR" -DENABLE_CCACHE:BOOL=0 -DCMAKE_TOOLCHAIN_FILE:FILEPATH=toolchain-gcc.cmake

add -DENABLE_WALLPAPERS=1 into the line, like so:

cmake -G "$CMAKE_GENERATOR" -DENABLE_CCACHE:BOOL=0 -DENABLE_WALLPAPERS=1 -DCMAKE_TOOLCHAIN_FILE:FILEPATH=toolchain-gcc.cmake

then save and compile.


NOTE: If the code in the configure script has been changed (additions or subtractions) since this was written, then the line numbers where you need to make the addition, may also change.

Summary

Your changes will still be there after you have updated the source, so that you will not have to keep making them each time you compile an ISO.
