I'm new to xfce, it's a nice change from fluxbox. Here's a question I have.
I had a script & keybind that called this to change wallpaper:
`feh --no-xinerama --bg-fill "$pic_path/$sel_pic_name"`;
was a directory. My script was on cron every five minutes or so & it gave me new eye candy :-)
What I am wanting to understand is the cli I can use to switch wallpapers in xfce.
Thanks in advance,
If you have xfdesktop 4.10 it has a feature to change wallpaper (I don't know how well it works, though).
Otherwise, it's not that your script doesn't work but I suppose that xfdesktop draws a picture over it. So AFAIK you would have to disable xfdesktop.
$ xfconf-query -c xfce4-desktop -p /backdrop/screen0/monitor0/image-path -s "$pic_path/$sel_pic_name"
Here's another way to do it, worked well for me. - http://rockhopper.dk/linux/software/xfc … hout-cron/
I just use wallpapoz. You can set it to have a different set of rotating wallpapers for each desktop, if you wish, although I don't bother.
