I am working on a script that will allow you to use a video as a wallpaper. This script uses xwinwrap and mplayer, when i have the script running the video is shown as a wallpaper and with windows/files open it all works. But when i close or minimize all windows/files my Unity panel and top panel disappear and the video comes on top of the panels.. I can get them back when pressing Super or Alt+Tab but i want them to stay on top of the video wallpaper.

hoping you guys can help me out... greetings from tinuz

Thanks for the answer but this doesn't fix it ... –  tinuz Oct 25 '11 at 9:57
    
When disabling the reveal mode your Unity launcher will not appear when set to auto hide or dodge windows... do NOT disable this option –  tinuz Oct 26 '11 at 8:37
