    New Wallpaper Rotator

    Hello my name is James and I would like to introduce myself. I manage multiple Linux servers but only recently did I switch my desktop environment to Ubuntu.... I noticed there wasn't A banner rotator like in Windows so I decided to go one step further. I wanted to make a script that would download wallpapers without having to do it yourself. Thus was born my baby. "WallArt". It Grabs wallpapers at random from wallbase.net based on your specifications. Just run the install script and your done. Simple. Easy and quick. If by some chance you do not like my script run it again to uninstall it. I would really like your input as a community. Thank you.

    PS: LOCAL SUPPORT WAS ADDED YOU CAN USE YOUR OWN WALLPAPERS NOW =)


    I encourage you to test it out yourself look at the code. Do whatever =)
    Only thing I must say is I only started commenting half way through it so I will finish that up and any other suggestions are MORE than welcome.
    Hopefully the opensource community will love my idea. And adopt it maybe not in my way but in yours.

    Love it!!! Would like to see it expanded. Maybe fetch using a search term and include Deviant Art.

    **EDIT: Also when the user clicks cancel at any time, the program doesn't need to continue with the installation. Other than those two things. I love it!!

    Which is more important in obtaining the truth, "what" or "why"? Trick question. They are of equal importance.

    Very nice.. A great idea and the install. options and setup are done very well. Once I figure out which ratio option gives me the perfect wide/full screen, I will be set...

    Thanks for this!

    Maybe you could give the user an option if they want to use their own set of wallpapers. Other than that it was nice. Great Job!

    It's great. You've been more productive than me recently

    Needs more choice as to where to get the wallpaper from though..

    I have added it in the new version either download it from Sourceforge or run the latest script and it will update. Local Support has been added... Interesting I uploaded the file yet on sourceforge it shows its not the latest... any Ideas on how I update that on sourceforge? I just deleted the last version on the site to make it work... So its good now =)
