Random wallpaper on startup

Postby fletcher on Mon May 20, 2013 9:40 am

I was wondering if there was a way to have the desktop wallpaper randomly selected on each new startup or login, from within a given folder. I use Cinnamon DE.

There was a post in 2009 about how to do it, but I was wondering if there was anything new on it. Maybe it has been written into a DE or there is a program for it?

The philosophy exam was a piece of cake -- which was a bit of a surprise, actually, because I was expecting some questions on a sheet of paper.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.
