Scripted Image Wallpaper Plugin

Plasma 4 Extensions by priomsrb 7 comments

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 - Jan 27 2011
