Change Desktop Wallpaper per Commandline
I wanted to change my desktop wallpaper with one click at the toolbar - so I needed a shell script to do this. I came up with this:
#!/bin/bash DIR="/home/jo/Pictures/wallhaven" PIC=$(ls $DIR | shuf -n1) CMPL=$DIR/$PIC dconf write /org/mate/desktop/background/picture-filename "'$CMPL'"
If you want to change your wallpaper after a given time, you could use cron jobs to do this, or just run another script:
#!/bin/bash while true; do /home/jo/Scripts/BackgroundChanger.sh sleep 600 done
The script above just executes the script every 5 minutes.
I hope this helped you - if so leave a comment! :)
