Revision of Desktop Drapes - A Crazy Wallpaper Randomizer from Sun, 02/10/2008 - 15:15

Thank you to Milosz for recommending Desktop Drapes. He's the developer, so if you like it you should let him know over at his site. It's a good opportunity to learn more about the open source community in the wonderful oasis of Ann Arbor in the desert of Michigan.

Desktop Drapes is a nifty utility used to randomize your desktop wallpaper. You add a couple pictures to the list, tell it how long to set them for, and you'll get some instant freshness to your desktop.


Drapes makes it even easier by automatically adding wallpapers you add to the directory. All you get to do is put the picture in the right place, and Drapes will figure it out for you.

Open up a Terminal (or do it the Synaptic way) and type the following:

sudo apt-get install drapes
