A Day in the Life by barid42 A Day in the Life by barid42
A changing wallpaper for Linux (tested on Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick). Size is 1366x768 (my desktop)

Instructions:
-copy the file to a directory where it won't bother you
-extract the files
-inside a terminal, cd into the folder that was created with the new files
-run "sh ./install" (without the quotes)

...and that should be it. You should now have a wallpaper that changes throughout the day. The images were borrowed from several online sources, and the xml script was borrowed from the All Day Long animated wallpaper found on gnome-look.org, by Edgar Rene Flores Balcazar.

I hope you enjoy it.

For newer distros, (based on [link]); after you run the install script, you can manually set the XML wallpaper with the following command in the terminal window:

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.background picture-uri 'file:///path/to/A_Day_in_the_Life.xml'


Where /path/to/ is the path to your A_Day_in_the_Life.xml file.

For newer distros, try this command in the terminal window:

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.background picture-uri 'file:///path/to/aDayInThelife_barid42/A_Day_in_the_Life.xml'

(where the install script placed the aDayInThelife_barid42/A_Day_in_the_Life.xml file)

I'll try this out as soon as I've got Linux installed again!

I followed your instructions perfectly, being a Ubuntu user since 9.04 was released, and am now running 11.04 with classic desktop, I ran the install.sh and it said the background was set, but nothing on my desktop changed?

Hey, your work got featured on a TV program named "Fr@tal", of a mexican channel named "ForoTV". I have not found the video, but it was a few minutes ago.
