What's it called where Wallpapers change colors over time of day?
 
Hi, I am looking for some wallpapers that change over the course of the day, like might be brighter when its sunny and darker when its night, or even perhaps like a weather wallpaper when if its raining, the wallpaper has rain, or snow, etc...

What's that called?

I know KDE has some weather wallpapers, but I'm not looking for just those. Like I know Gnome 3 has one I think with the blue color and the stripes that's supposed to change over the course of the day. What is that type of thing called so I can correctly search for them?

A tacky gimmick?

Living wallpaper?

It would be really easy to set up with a cron script and some ImageMagick. I have a random-wallpaper script you could use as a base if you like.
