I have mostly rewriten it to fix some bug, add a few new features and get it working again.
I personally use this to plugin to display a syncronized random wallpaper to both of my displays.

New Features from Scripted Image:
Added configurable background color
Scripts can now in addition to a image path also pass a prefered Resize Mode and Background Color along. (* see README)
Allow to use relative as well as absolute image paths from program/script
Allow to use UNICODE output for program/script

Installation and usage:

[Original 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 (

Writing your own scripts is very easy. Your 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.
