Splatter ( Gnome desktop wallpaper auto changer )

Splatter will change your Gnome desktop wallpaper every so often to a random one in the list of available wallpapers you have added to Gnome

http://sourceforge.net/project/showf...roup_id=214500

release notes

http://sourceforge.net/project/shown...roup_id=214500

The notes didn't work for me as it wouldn't create the required directories


Change * to suit your username


Code:
mkdir /home/*/.splatter
cd /home/*/.splatter
wget http://dfn.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/splatter/splatter
mkdir /home/*/.config/autostart
chmod +x /home/*/.splatter/splatter
/home/*/.splatter/splatter

Run it and see if you get a error


Code:
[leigh@localhost ~]$ /home/leigh/Desktop/splatter
Creating autostart file: [/home/leigh/.config/autostart/splatter.desktop]
I am afraid I cannot read the wallpaper file: [/home/leigh/.gnome2/backgrounds.xml]. Exiting.
If you do just change your gnome background to create .gnome2/backgrounds.xml



Then to run it again

Code:
/home/*/.splatter/splatter -d &

To add it to sessions startup I had to make a small script

Code:
gedit /home/*/.splatter/splatter-startup
Then add ( change leigh to your username )

PHP Code:
#! /bin/bash
/home/leigh/.splatter/splatter -

Then make it executable

Code:
chmod +x /home/*/.splatter/splatter-startup

Then add the path to the startup script to sessions startup

Code:
/home/*/.splatter/splatter-startup

Re: Splatter ( Gnome desktop wallpaper auto changer )

Does anyone know if this still works? I'm looking for a program that will change backgrounds after a while.

I think that there is a Gnome extension that does that. Sorry, but I cannot remember the name this minute.
