while [ 1 ]; do bsetbg /path/to/first/bg; sleep 3600 ; bsetbg /path/to/second/bg; sleep 3600; done

(and so on) =D

I don't know what the guy above me is saying, but my friend did it and he did it by using cron and setting it to cycle every 30 seconds or whatever. It was pretty cool!

cron is overkill for that, IMHO. The above is just a bash script to change the wallpaper every hour (3600 seconds==60 mins*60 seconds==1 hour). But I think he's looking for some kinda gnome builtin program'y thing to do it for him, which I cant answer to as I use Enlightenment on two boxes, and dont have X on the other two =P
