Description:

WallPapr 0.1

This is a SuperKaramba theme that automatically changes your desktop background to a new image from your (or someone else's) Flickr account. A small box displays the image name, description, and optionally additional photo data (such as camera model, flash, etc). Also, all image downloads are fully threaded so that SuperKaramba doesn't freeze while images are downloading.

You don't need to edit anything in the script. Use the configure menu to change the flickr account, update frequency, and to enable or disable showing nerdy camera stats and other EXIF tags.

This requires SuperKaramba 0.37 or newer since it's an skz package. You might be able to unzip the skz file and run it on an older version, but I haven't tested it.

Have fun. You can email any questions to adam [at] furiousbear (dot) com.

KDE has the ability to use a wallpaper slide-show. If there's something besides displaying wallpaper info that this thing does, tell me, and I'll be content.

It downloads the slideshow photos from your photo collection at flickr.com. It doesn't use files on your local machine (although it does cache the files). That's the whole point of this.

If you have a large library of photos on flickr.com (or have friends who do), you can automatically have those images used as a slideshow on your desktop.I f you aren't familiar with flickr.com, this probably won't be too interesting to you.

Also, it shows you the file descriptions, camera information, etc.
