Wallpaper Slideshow in Gnome

I’ve just stumbled across, that the feature for putting several pictures in a row and cycle them through as a wallpaper is not in the current version of Gnome for Ubuntu. I found a really nice tutorial at where it’s described very well and easy going.

At the bottom you can adjust the time for each picture and the time for the crossfading.

To do a slideshow just:

add this to your repositories with the software manager:


and install “crebs” through synaptic afterwards or do following in the terminal:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:crebs/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install crebs

Ubuntu Lucid Lynx 10.04 today?

static Ubuntu Lucid Lynx 10.04 today?

Ubuntu Lucid Lynx 10.04 should be released today. What I saw in the beta was pretty good. One of the major changes: The window control buttons were moved to the left side of the window borders (pretty Mac-like). There also was announced that a menu on top of the screen (again we know that from MacOS) is a possible feature for 10.10 so we can expect some pretty interesting user-interface changes.

Nothing on the ftps yet, so stay tuned with
