Does desktop change wallpapers in a list only on start xfce?

I have set a list of my wallpapers, but it seems only when xfce starts the wallpaper changes. And I always leave my pc on....
So, I wonder if it can change with an interval, like 10 min.

Thanks.

I though running xfdestop -reload (or something similar) works... So maybe that also works in a cron job...

xfdesktop --reload is the command, but you cannot run this as a cron job, because that will be a separate instance of yourself being logged in, without X11 and desktop. You can use a script along following lines:

while [ 1 ]; do
  sleep 15m             # xfdesktop will change backdrop upon starting
  xfdesktop --reload
done

In which 15m stands for 15 minutes...
