[solved]random wallpapers in xfce?
« on: March 08, 2014, 11:57:50 AM »
I'm thinking to switch on one of my desktops to SolydX(XFCE-desktop), now i am running LXLE(LXDE-desktop) on it and i have random wallpapers that switch every hour. I did that this way:
Quote
## Setup automatic wallpaper changer. (minutes, hours, days, etc) ##
Go to the Menu > System Tools> Scheduled Tasks
Click New, then click 'A task that launches recurrently'
Enter 'Wallpaper Changer' for the description.
Enter the following for the command.
pcmanfm -w "$(find ~/Pictures/Wallpapers -type f | shuf -n1)"
Select 'X application: suppress output' from the first drop down menu.
From the second drop down menu select hour, minute, day, week, etc.
    Click apply and your done.
Is there some kind of way to fix that in XFCE to?
The main reason for the change is the rolling one.

Not sure if this helps, however right clicking desktop and selecting Desktop properties allows me to change my wallpaper every second, minute, hour etc with also an ability to change it in order or randomly.

That trick only works on the newest version of XFCE. I do not know how cutting edge SolydX is.
