KDE can automatically change wallpapers on your system at a specified time. You give it the list of image files, and it can either change them in a predetermined order, or randomly.
To have KDE automatically change your wallpaper, first you must set the layout of the wallpaper in the drop down box labeled Positioning.
Now create a list of images you want to cycle through. You create the list by Adding and Removing images from the list. Once the list is created, the combo box labeled Switch image every: will become active. Enter the number of minutes between each image switch. You can have the image change every 1 minute to every 1440 minutes (24 hours).
You can use the drop down box labeled Image order: to determine whether KDE randomly selects the image, or cycles through the images in the order they appear in the list.
Click OK to accept your changes, or Cancel to leave without making any changes permanent.
