Re: HowTo: Create a background slideshow.
I question the need to copy the folder with the backgrounds to the /usr/share/backgrounds folder as detailed in step 6 of the tutorial. As an experiment I created a compilation in a new folder at the location I usually set them up (/home/rod/Pictures/Wallpaper), right mouse clicked on the desktop and pointed it to the xml file in the new folder and everything worked just fine from there. BTW, thanks yaaarrrgg for your script which certainly eases the creation of the xml file.
So, I wonder if it's really necessary to copy them to the system location? There may be reasons for doing so (perhaps to make them available system-wide for other users?) but it would simplify the process by eliminating this step.
