Scripted Image Wallpaper Plugin
KDE Plasma 4 Extensions
Score 69%
Description:

This is a Plasma Wallpaper plugin that lets you use scripts to control the wallpaper.

You can start using it by downloading the sample scripts (http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=117118)

Writing your own scripts is very easy. You script only has to print the path to an image. Then that image will be used as the wallpaper. Check out the README for more info.

You can set a time to re-run the script in.

Please read the README for instructions on how to install.

@Shafqat Bhuiyan: Thanks for making this plugin, it would have taken me way longer to code this myself if I didn't have yours as inspiration/reference! :)

Thank you for updating this plugin. I stopped working on this plugin some time ago but it is good to see that someone has found my work useful. I like the improvements you've made to the plugin. I hope other people also find your plugin useful.

Also check the sample scripts page for a better slideshow script.

Sorry for the very late reply.

Unfortunately the pastebins you posted no longer exist. If you are still interested and have the patches with you, I would be happy to add them.

Thank you for your help.

Thanks for a very useful plugin!

Using a simple script like this:

[code]
#!/bin/bash

_imagedir=/home/user/pictures/desktops/
_image=${_imagedir}$(ls "$_imagedir" | shuf -n1)

feh --bg-max "$_image"
echo "$_image"
[/code]

You can set the X root image at the same time which fixes the psuedo-transparency issues in programs like gkrellm and conky.

P.S. It would be cool if you could pass arguments to the script, both manually in the "Script Path" and maybe automatically pass the Positioning type as well

I use conky with feh as well. That's a nice solution you thought up. That would make slideshows work well with conky.

I added an extra arguments field in the settings. You can also add the positioning/resize type in the arguments by using %R. More info is in the readme.

Thanks for your suggestions.

Working fine with the Kubuntu 9.10.

Excellent idea to add the option to use scripts with the wallpapers.

Thank you.
