View Full Version : [all variants] desktop slideshow...

September 8th, 2010, 03:54 AM

Can anyone point me to a good app that would allow me to select some pics (like of the Christchurch earthquake) that would make up a slideshow for a desktop background, instead of a static pic?

I know Mac's have the ability to do this, and am curious as to what is available for Ubuntu.

Thanks in advance..

It isn't an ap but an xml file. Give me a second to find the link.

EDIT: Found it quickly... HERE (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1410618)
Apparently somebody created a script file and that might help you.
