Description:

This is a collection of scripts that print the path to a wallpaper image. It is mainly meant to be used for the Scripted Image Wallpaper Plugin (http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=115147). However you may use it for anything you want.

These scripts are easy to use and do not require knowledge of programming (unless you want to modify them).

The following scripts are included:

earthshots.sh - Downloads today's picture from earthshots.org
simpledesktops.sh - Downloads latest wallpaper from simpledesktops.com
slideshow.py - Picks a random image from a list of directories
day_of_the_week.sh - Different images on diffrent days of the week
special_dates.sh - Picks a different image on special dates
time_of_day.py - Picks a diffrent slideshow in morning, day, evening and night

If you would like to contribute your script, please send me a message. See the README on how to write your own scripts.

Sample slideshow script has the following deficiencies:

1. It does not explore subdirectories.
2. It fails with directories with accented characters in its path.

I made this shell script that addresses these shortcomings:
