    Can somebody show me how to change the wallpaper automatically.

    OpenSuse 12.2 32-bit Gnome

    I must be missing something basic .. cause i can find no reference to this issue anywhere on the net!! .. surely it just can be just me who can't do this??

    Thanks for help in advance.

    You can get an app for that here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/bgshifter/
    There might be others as well, but you'll do better by searching for gnome background

    Thanks Laz .... i went and checked it out ... turned out to be a ruby script .. but didn't want to go down that path [already overwhelmed!!]

    so found out that this script run under bash will do the job

    Code:
    ***New members are not allowed to post external links or emails for 7 days. Please contact the forum administrator for more information.***

    have made a script called 'wallpaperchanger' and have run it manually .. and sure enough, does the job in a flash!!

    HOWEVER, getting the script to run via CRONTAB -e is another issue ... below are the contents of my user crontab file generated via 'crontab -e' when logged in as local user ... I know that it runs because it produces the 'log' file ... albeit an empty one!!

    Code:
    59 * * * * /home/USER/bin/wallpaperchanger > /home/USER/Documents/cron.log

    Anybody got any clues as to why the CRONTAB line will produce the log file but NOT run the SCRIPT????

    Thanks

    I would have assumed GNOME would do that for you. I know KDE has a slide show option.

    Know what you mean, but at least you know what you need. Here is another possibility you might want to check out:
