Avoid repeat image

When I use the example URLs it works just fine; but I do not seem to be able to display locally stored images using this product. All that I see is the background color selected in the applet.

Is there some specific format to enter a local path to a folder containing different images?

The input field is only for URLs,
local folders and files are selected via the corresponding push-buttons.
Also, local files are only displayed, if the URL input field is empty.

How do you use it? I followed instructions to install - and that seemed to work. I can't find the settings panel to use it though. Do you need to restart plasma after installing?

On my system it is not necessary to restart plasma.

After the install on the console it says: 'Successfully installed /home/DATA/KDEPlasma/Vallpaper/Vallpaper'.

Then right-click on the desktop and goto 'Configure Desktop'.
In the drop-down of 'Wallpaper Type' select 'Vallpaper 1.1.2'.
The settings page should be displayed.

Well, I figured out how to use it now, but it just doesn't work. When I right click on my Desktop, the menu item is called 'Folder View Settings' for some reason. From there I can select Vallpaper under 'Wallpaper Type'. Unfortunately, this usually crashed plasma for some reason (Segmentation fault). I must have some conflict or something. I can't figure out any way to debug it either.

My system gives following info:
KDE Plasma Version: 5.13.2
KDE Frameworks Version: 5.47.0
Qt Version: 5.11.1

Even with 'Layout' set to 'Folder View' the right-click menu item says 'Configure Desktop'.

Good work but there's something i don't personally like. If i put more wallpapers for the same virtal desktop, for example two wallpapers, when i hit "Next Image" or just wait the time i set, Vallpaper sometimes puts the same image as before again, which is stupid.

Nice work. Even the animated cube transitions are smooth.

I missed this functionality so much! Thank you so much! You know what would be even more cool? If you give it support to get unsplash backgrounds

Although you hardcoded background color GUI on tabs. I'm using a dark color scheme on my KDE setup and I can't read a damn on them.
