some tool for "automagically" change wallpaper


Surely it's exist.

Do you know some tool for change the desktop wallpaper in KDE automatically (for example every 30 mins or at every login, etc) ?

I know it's not "useful" but..... sometimes It can be nice

thanks!

P.S. I seen something like this in gnome, but I don't remember the name

It's not a bug it's a feature
Nah that's cool, valid question.

Ok, i'll turn this into a more valid question

... is there a desktop changer you can use in Fluxbox?

All i could find was how to set it one time:

Quote:
1.5.1 Setting Styles and Backgrounds
Selecting a Style (theme) is done by right-clicking the desktop. Menu -> Fluxbox -> Styles
and also under Menu -> Fluxbox -> User Styles
System styles are kept in /usr/local/share/fluxbox/styles as default. The path must be readable by non-root users to be accessed, or copy them to ~/.fluxbox/styles.

To change the background, a few commands are available. I use fbsetbg. The syntax is:
fbsetbg [ -fFcCtTaA /path/to/wallpaper ] [-l] [-h] [-d] [-p]

-f Set fullscreen wallpaper
-c Set centered wallpaper
-t Set tiles wallpaper
-a Set maximized wallpaper, preserving aspect.
-l Set previous wallpaper
-d debug
-p Tips

It makes a file ~/.fluxbox/lastwallpaper for use with the -l option.

Zyrix,

I am not sure if its compatible with Fluxbox but you could try GKrellM with the gkrellmbgchg plug-in.

I am not sure if you have heard of it before, but GKrellM can do a lot of other things such as report CPU, HDD, memory usage, uptime etc etc.

Hope this helps!

Did you have a look at fbsetbg -h? Run fbsetbg -i, if it says it's using anything other than feh then install feh. Then use fbsetbg -r /path/to/wallpaper_dir and it'll set a random bg every login
