Question Wallpapers etc for Ubuntu


Is there something like Webshots for Ubuntu? I got really p*ssed off with Vista and am hoping Linux/Ubuntu can do the job but I really miss my photos that I was able to cycle through as wallpaper with Webshots. I know you can select different themes as wallpaper but it's not the same as randomly scrolling through my happy holiday snaps - any suggestions?

These notes from an ubuntu 8.04 system may help.

Wallpaper Tray 0.4.6 -- installation
2nov8

1.apt-get install wallpaper-tray
2.ln -s /usr/share/gnome/apps/Applications/wp_tray.desktop /usr/share/applications/
3.Configured ~./wallpapers as wallpaper directory
4.Set change to 120 mins.
5.Gnome Control Centre, Personal, Sessions, Add
Name: Start Wallpaper Tray
Command: /usr/bin/wallpaper-tray
Comment: Starts Wallpaper Tray

Alternatively (for step 5) create “~/.config/autostart/wallpaper-tray.desktop” with following content (first line is empty)

[Desktop Entry]
Type=Application
Encoding=UTF-8
Version=1.0
Name=No Name
Name[en_IN]=Start wallpaper-tray
Comment[en_IN]=Starts wallpaper-tray
Comment=Starts wallpaper-tray
Exec=/usr/bin/wallpaper-tray
X-GNOME-Autostart-enabled=true
