You can find information about the program here:
To create a script file:
1. Open Applications>Accessories>Text Editor.
2. Copy and past everything from the code block below.
3. Save your new file--I saved mine as wallpapoz-install.
4. Open the file browser and right-click on your new file and select "Properties" go to the "Permissions" tab and check the "Execute" box.
You now have an executable script file.
To execute the script file:
1. Open Applications>System Tools>Terminal
2. Update your repositories just to be safe:
sudo apt-get update
3. Make sure you are in the directory you saved your file in and enter:
Well, that's what I did. But I am no GNU/Linux guru.
At this moment I do not know if this script works. This is just a cut-n-paste of a previous post with several changes. I will test it later on a computer that runs Ubuntu 5.04 Hoary and has not yet had wallpapoz installed.
# Here are my notes from installing wallpapoz on Ubuntu Hoary Hedgehog 5.04.
# You can copy and save this and run it as a script.
# The instructions are all here as comments.
# I am an end-user and know not what I am doing. Use at your own risk
# Good Luck! Tomy
# STEP 1. Download two files:
sudo wget -c http://wallpapoz.sf.net/temp/wallpapoz-0.2.tar.bz2
sudo wget -c http://members.iinet.net.au/~gracey88/libxml++-2.10.0-1_i386.deb
# STEP 2. Install libxml++-2.10 from manicka's deb.
sudo dpkg -i libxml++-2.10.0-1_i386.deb
#STEP 3. Install the dependencies: (modified from Akbar's instructions )
# You probably don't need the dev versions and I added libxml++2.6
sudo apt-get -y install build-essential
sudo apt-get -y install libsigc++-2.0-dev
sudo apt-get -y install libglibmm-2.4-dev
sudo apt-get -y install libgtkmm-2.4-dev
sudo apt-get -y install libglademm-2.4-dev
sudo apt-get -y install libxml++2.6
# STEP 4. Install the wallpapoz program
sudo tar -jxvf wallpapoz-0.2.tar.bz2
sudo sh install.sh /usr
# The End
If everything worked click on Applications>Accessories>Wallpapoz.
After you create a configuration file you can set the daemon to run every time you boot Ubuntu by selecting:
Systems>Preferences>Sessions and then the tab for 'Startup Programs'
choose 'Add' and enter:
Hope it works for you
Update: I have run the script on a fresh install of Ubuntu 5.04 Hoary (after I installed all upgrades).
It works!! At least it did for me.
The script installs the "dev" versions of the libraries and therefore a lot of files are installed that you probably don't need. The reason I choose the "dev" versions is that Akbar's instructions include this line:
The only glitch I ran into was the first line in /etc/apt/sources.list that refers to the cd repository needs to be commented out. I have already deleted the line so I am not able to post it here. FYI here is my file:
Remember, you must install the development files too not just runtime files
Edit 09/27/2005: added sudo to tar command -- seems to work better
# modified version of /etc/apt/sources.list
deb /http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu hoary main restricted universe multiverse
# deb-src http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu hoary main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu hoary-updates main restricted
# deb-src http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu hoary-updates main restricted
deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu hoary-security main restricted universe
# deb-src http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu hoary-security main restricted universe
# The End
Edit 10/18/05:added sudo to make command -- had a permissions error and this seemed to work
