Hey, i'd like to try this, but i don't really know how. First go to system -> preferences -> appearance -> background -> add
then i choose the xml (with the correct paths) but when i press ok the wallpaper isn't recognized nor added to the list. What am i doing wrong? thx in advance

Hi,

Make sure that the path is exactly the same in your XML file, remember that Unix is case sensitive so, if your path has any capital letter you must type the same in the XML file.

i checked the paths in a terminal by using gthumb to view the images and it's correct. I've tried copying the folder to /usr/share/backgrounds/ and again adjust the xml but still nothing. Do i need a special package to view this wallpaper?

Nice one... but do you have that in a higher resolution? the pngs are just 1280x800, i'd need at least 1680x1050. Would be nice.

Sorry dude, that's the only available resolution so far. Maybe I can work on some other styles and resolutions soon.

Thanks! and thanks for your job as well, your XML script rocks and that's the reason I got inspired.

Nice script. What is the logic behind the different colours? If I can understand the concept I can create my own wallpaper collection.

The script simply takes one of the 8 available wallpapers depending of the current time, every wallpaper is different. So, the script does not change the color of one single wallpaper, instead of that it chooses one of the available Wallpapers.
