Description:

A small utility to create and set the background.xml file needed for wallpaper slideshows in Gnome.

To use:
1) Extract 'gnome-wallpaper-slideshow' from the archive
2) Double click it and then click run when presented with a dialog
3) Click the 'Select' button and choose your folder containing the images you wish to use in your slideshow
4) Edit the picture duration and transition duration if desired
5) Click 'OK'...

A gnome-wallpaper-slideshow.xml file will be written to ~/.gnome-wallpaper-slideshow and the file will be set as your current background.

Update 5/26: 1.02 uploaded.

Update 5/25: 1.01 uploaded.

Update 5/24: When you click the 'Select' button to choose your folder, it will initially display your Pictures folder. In Ubuntu 9.10 and prior if you click OK without navigating to another folder and back to the Pictures folder, nothing will happen. This is a [url=https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=557689]bug in GTK+[/url] and has been fixed in GTK+ 2.20 shipping with Ubuntu 10.04.




Changelog:

1.02:
- New command line mode which can be used via cron or startup applications to refresh xml when new files are added (ex, ./gnome-wallpaper-slideshow ~/Pictures) use --help for all options
- Images are now sorted alphabetically in the xml file
- Uses case insensitivity when searching for images

1.01:
- Saves background xml file to ~/.gnome-wallpaper-slideshow instead of creating background-1.xml in each of your picture folders
- Saves state on exit to ~/.gnome-wallpaper-slideshow so your last used folder and durations are reloaded on next run
- Will not create duplicate entries in your gnome backgrounds preferences dialog
- Fixed resizing bug on transitions
- Refactored to use libxml2 instead of xml.dom, should be faster and writes the xml files nicer

1.0:
Initial version

 Not working for me !

Hi,
i have fedora 10 with following installations of python :

/usr/bin/python
/usr/bin/python2.5

however, when i execute the following from tcsh :
> ./gnome_wallpaper_slideshow
it returns me the following error :
File "./gnome_wallpaper_slideshow", line 133
except RuntimeError as strerror:
^
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

BTW : i did not try executing it from gnome window gui : double-click just opens the file in vim.
where am i going wrong ?
thanks !

Unfortunately I do not have Python 2.5 available for testing. You can try to delete the ~/.gnome-wallpaper-slideshow folder and execute the program again. You are not getting the run dialog either because your old version of Gnome does not support it or because gvim is set as the default mime handler for .py files.

If deleting the folder does not work, you can create the xml file manually as described in my blog post which this program was written for http://blog.stewartgateley.com/2010/05/how-to-create-desktop-wallpaper.html.

You might try using the new command line mode. I have altered the exception handling in the command line mode so they should be compatible with 2.5 but this is still untested.

Hi
i read your blog, did some "research" on the net, experimented with my own xml files.
finally came to the conclusion that something is broken : the standard /usr/share/backgrounds/solar/solar.xml is not working ! (with duration changed to 5.0)
i wonder if i need to upgrade to recent Fedora / gnome.
thanks for the help !

 Works With Linux Mint 11

works great just had to change one line to make it a bit more usable for me: For all my pix are not the same size and shape.

wallpaper.addChild(wallpaper.newChild(None, "options", "scale"))

Changed "stretched" to "scale". If I want to stretch now I can just go to the backgrounds settings and set stretch from there.

Thank You for the script.

if you selct a folder with a name like:

when you open the script again ,wont open.and you have to delete the config folder in home.
the problem is related with the space between names in foldername
