    Ah, thanks!

    Awsome ! But can you install this in Intrepid (I must say I’m waiting for Lucid) ?
    add-apt-repository does not seem to work …

    at the moment only for karmic

  7. tadashi says:

    I really like this idea in general, but isn’t there some program that would include a set of wallpapers to choose from or, at least, is it possible to replace the current wallpapers with my own?

  8. tadashi says:

    I found day-of-ubuntu.xml and day-of-ubuntu folder in /usr/share/backgrounds. Seems it’d probably be easy to create own sets of backgrounds. Thanks for the post.

    Very nice wallpaper…i love it

  11. Jim says:

    Excuse my ignorance, but how do you process the .xml file so that the .jpg files rotate during the day ? Isn’t that the purpose of this package ?

  12. anonymous says:

    in 9.10 The ‘wallpapers’ can be contained in a directory, with a .xml file that defines how/when they change. This package is a set of wallpapers and a xml file that sets when they change.

  13. Jim says:

    I understand and see that. I am using kubuntu which allows for a list of graphic images to be rotated as a background image. I don’t see how I can use the .xml file in that situation. Does the gnome desktop (ubuntu) do something differently with the .xml for a background desktop ?

    follow-up with e-mails

    I too had a problem getting this setup at first. As KruyKaze said, it is in appearance; but mine was about 1/3 down the screen. I noticed it because it had a next button below the picture and the thumbnail was “stacked” indicating more than one image. Hope this helps anyone else that was as confused as I was.

  16. James says:

    Any way to get these working in 9.04?

  17. James says:


    Found it!…aper_1_all.deb

  18. Arup says:

    This version is only for x32 Karmic and not x64.

  19. Anuvrat says:
