Rotating Backgrounds in Gnome

Hello all. Is there a way to make Gnome 2.2 change backgrounds randomly in Gnome? Like you can in KDE.

I would run KDE but I have a sound problem. If I play MP3's it skips and if open other programs when I am play music it makes the music skip more. Do not have this problem in Gnome. I using Linux on a Sony Vaio PCG-FRV27 Laptop. Works great other then that..

Thank You

Try disabling KDE system sounds ;)

For changing the backgrounds you
could use xscreensaver (without
locking) and bsetbg as the display module :)
