Wallpaper Slideshow

Submitted:  May 23 2010
Updated:  Jun 16 2010

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

It would be really simple to implement saving the settings as either gconf keys or in a .conf file. I thought about doing so, but I shied away from it since it is just a downloadable and executable python file. If you deleted it, the config file or gconf settings would still be littered on the system... something I am not a fan of. To implement that I would want to package it up as a deb file so I could remove the settings upon uninstall. I could do that if there was enough demand (and there may be judging by the number of downloads so far), or I could simply provide a patch or alternate copy for you.

As for a wallpaper pack, check out Day of Ubuntu: http://dylanmccall.googlepages.com/DayOfUbuntuSlideshow.tar.gz

What's cool about this pack is it will continuously morph all day. It already includes an xml file with hard coded paths to /usr/share/backgrounds/day_of_ubuntu, but if you wanted to just extract the images and use my tool, set the picture duration to 1 hour and the transition duration to 5 hours.

I am glad you like it enough to want to submit it for inclusion in Ubuntu Ultimate Edition. You are free to do with it whatever you please, that includes modifying it and redistributing it. That said however, for inclusion with a distribution release I would want to include the requests of erosenninrho above for saving state and package it as a deb.

I put up a new source version here and created a new google code project @ http://code.google.com/p/gnome-wallpaper-slideshow/. I will try to get a deb up shortly. Please use the google code project as the official version. It also includes the GPL license and author information.

You might also be interested in my Rhythmbox Dynamic Mode plugin. It keeps your playlist full with recommendations from Last.fm. Default values are set for a very cohesive playlist, but all values can be tweaked through the Rhythmbox UI and are saved in gconf.

Thanks for your consideration in UUE, I am very flattered. I had an idea to extend this app even further with an advanced mode to show a preview of all the images in the directory selected, allow you to re-organize and delete them and set the duration, transition and effects per file. I am starting to kick off a new GoogleTV media player project though so that will likely be on hold for a bit.

Very nice work! Finally something that works and is user friendly.

I found a few problems though:
- files with JPG extension instead of jpg are not used for slideshow (might happen with PNG etc, didn't test)
- images added/deleted/renamed on the folder where the images are placed require us to run the script again so the changes are reloaded)
- To get to the settings I have to run the script again, didn't find other way

It would be great to have an option to use pictures online also.

I will try to publish a new version this week that uses case insensitive file extensions and adds a command line execution mode which would allow you to execute it from a cron script or your startup items. I could add a 'Watch this folder for changes' option but that would require the application to write itself to your local crontab or to run continuously and listen for dbus events, which are a bit outside of its scope. It is meant to be a execute and halt script.

The settings are stored in ~/.gnome-wallpaper-slideshow/gnome-wallpaper-slideshow.config.

It would be nice to use online galleries, but gnome does not allow URLs for the filenames and it would be impossible to parse all of the different sites. I thought about a new tool which would subscribe to a 'Wallpaper of the day' rss feed but I could not find any such feeds.

Thanks for your answer!

About the wallpapers: Windows 7 and others have online pictures of the day, maybe this could be used, unless there's any copyright problem.Mac I think also have something like that. I'll try to find some free sites.

About the slideshow, an option for it to be sequential or random would also be cool.

thanks ;)

New command line version is available for download. You can use this for adding to your crontab or startup items. Both the GUI mode and command line mode now use case insensitive searches and sort alphabetically.

There is no Random mode as you cannot specify this in the XML, but they can be shuffled which should be sufficient if the script is being ran via some scheduler. The one I just put up now is a bit of a quick hack, I will need to do some refactoring as there is now a lot of duplicate code for the GUI and command line modes and I will incorporate shuffling into the next one via a command line option.

I've got some other projects I am working on right now but eventually I would like to add an advanced mode to the GUI that would allow you to order the images any way you want and set the durations for each image individually.
