    Need help with an idea of mine.

    I have an idea that (I think) is unique. I tried searching and came up with nothing for someone with the same idea. I want a way that my Wallpaper will change with the weather. Such as on a sunny day, Display Wallpaper-Sunny.png or Wallpaper-Storm.png Etc. I have wallpapers that will work great, if only I had a way to set them. By my assumption, there should be a way to do it with a shell script. However, I'll need a way to set a wallpaper. Finding the day's weather should be moderately easy. And I have a JavaScript file that will do it that I extracted off a theme for my iPod.

    Does anyone know of a way to check the weather about once per hour, export that into something (/dev/weather?) then have it be read, then pick a wallpaper based upon the output?

    Thank you,
    IceRayn.

    I'm installing it now, however, is it possible to change the wallpapers to different images? My Internet connection is REALLY slow so the dependencies are taking a couple of minutes.

    i cant see any options to change the pics, just from where it gets its weather info.

    But there are links on the download page, if you have ideas or questions...
