    Hello, I don't know why Desktop Nova doesn't really work but I will suggest Wallch; you can download it from the Ubuntu Software Center and it is especially designed to cooperate with Unity.

    DesktopNova needs to be updated for GNOME 3 which means using gsettings instead of gconf to change your background.

    See http://pad.lv/780079 which makes it sound like this won't happen until Pangolin.

    Thanks, it is good but it can be better, like providing an indicator or something like this, development is active despite the load of homework and a better result will come

    Oh no! No desktopnova!

    Does anyone know if wallch will start automatically? It doesn't appear to be the case, although it looks very cool!
    The outrageous is the reasonable, if introduced politely.
