Description:

This is my first nautilus script.

This script automatically creates a wallpaper .xml with images from the folder in which you run the script.

In other words, create wallpapers like this:

http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=83443&forumpage=2


The images are placed in alphabetical order, for example, you can sort images in this way:

1.png 2.png 3.png

And the order will be that.

You can choose the time between wallpapers, and animation time by default is 5 seconds.

SUPPORTED FILES: JPG, PNG AND GIF



HOW-TO

Download the file from here, extract, and then run install.sh


If you can't see xmlback in the nautilus scripts menu, move the file xmlback mannually to

/home/username/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts

If the folder doesn't exists, then create it.

Enjoy it

 Your script has a bug

 
 by titaniumtux on: Jan 7 2010

Hey,

Your script has a bug. For me it generates an xml file that's somehow incomplete. Say I have four photos in my cycle folder (jpg), the script will generate the following: static (1.jpg), transition 1 to 2, static 2, transition 2 to 3, static 3, transition 3 to 4, and end there (meaning 4.jpg is never my background image). Could you please fix your script so that it would complete the loop??

Also, your install script didn't work for me. I had to manually copy the xmlback over to my nautilus scripts folder.

Yes, it's true, I will patch it.

the first version worked, but to optimize the code, I forgot to add the last line of the xml, which corresponds to a process that is made out of for.

Tú puedes agregarla manualmente si deseas, es fácil.

To a noobie this is rather vague,the down load has two items in it, can you explain step by step how to implement these items, when I upload something I provide detailed instructions, so even the new people get a chance to play! other than that, I have it working and functions well ! Thanks for the script ! I voted up !

And do you know of a way to use "overlay" or another type of "crossfade" script with this, So to make the transition slower, kind of fade from one to the next, it would be great to have the option to set the transition time as well as the duration ! Great work BTW !

 name the .xml personally

 
 by chaopoch on: Jan 8 2010
 
Score 50%

It is by default to name the .xml as background.xml, however it is not good for file management, I modify it to be able to name the .xml personally, here are the codes for your reference:

#BACK=backgrounds.xml

#The following lines are added by Paul on 2010/01/08
zenity --question --text "Name the .xml file as background.xml by default?"
QUEST=$?

if [ $QUEST -eq 0 ]; then
BACK=backgrounds.xml
else
NAMEXML=$(zenity --entry --text "Input the name of .xml background file")
BACK=$NAMEXML.xml
fi

I am taking into account comments. Thanks for the suggestions.

Add options such as animation time could be somewhat risky, I do not know if it will work well to other times, in fact, sometimes the transitions stop working, no problem of the script, but gnome. I might add, but would be great to have in one window all the options instead of many different windows, unfortunately I do not know how to do that with zenity, I think you can't. May be in python with pygtk in the future.

 tempfile problem

 
 by Ayanami0 on: Jan 16 2010
 
Score 50%

This script totally crashed nautilus on my system.
The script created an xml file with no images in it, it seems nautilus doesn't like that. The reason is that I don't have the 'tempfile' utility on my system. What I have is mktemp. So if I replace
FILES=$(tempfile
with
FILES=$(mktemp)
it works.
Maybe a check, that the utility is available would be good

You can fix this problem adding this lines at the beginning:

################################
if [ -f /bin/tempfile ]; then
echo "using tempfile ..."
FILES=$(tempfile)
else
if [ -f /bin/mktemp ]; then
echo "using mktemp ..."
FILES=$(mktemp)
else
echo "error: mktemp or tempfile not found ..."
zenity --error --text "You will need tempfile or mktemp utility!! "
exit
fi

fi
####################################


I will upload a new version with the changes. Thanks
