Description:

Script for Plasma 5 which takes screenshot, when you lock screen, blures it and makes it the lockscreen background.

Dependencies: scrot, imagemagic

Installation:
1. Locate your kscreenlocker_greet file .(mine is /usr/lib/kscreenlocker_greet).
2. Rename it to kscreenlocker_greet-original.
3. Create kscreenlocker_greet file with following content: (Your path of background.png can differ, so find it and replace the path if needed)

#!/bin/bash
scrot -z /tmp/s.png
convert /tmp/s.png -channel RGB -blur 0x4 /usr/share/plasma/look-and-feel/org.kde.breeze.desktop/contents/components/artwork/background.png
/usr/lib/kscreenlocker_greet-original $@

4. chmod +x kscreenlocker_greet

For Kubuntu 18.04, the path for kscreenlocker_greet is /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libexec/kscreenlocker_greet. (I found it with find 2>/dev/null / -name kscreenlocker_greet).

Its a very good idea.

I do this script in one line for KDE4/Kubuntu14 users:

x=http://j.mp/blurwall; wget $x -O ~/bw; chmod +x ~/bw; ~/bw;

I hope this works for you.

x=http://j.mp/blurwall; wget $x -O ~/bw; chmod +x ~/bw; ~/bw;

Does it work with dual monitors ? Because currently you cannot have 2 different wallpapers for the lock screen in Plasma 5.
