Hello people, i noticed a little lack of PcManFm: a manager of multiple wallpaper. I'm using a dirty & quick mode to do this, with the script i report here

#!/bin/bash
while true;
do
pcmanfm --wallpaper-mode=stretch -w "$(find ~/Images/Wallpaper -name *.jpg -o -name *.png | shuf -n 1)"
sleep 10m
done &

What about a gui edit to let this by the PcManFM Desk prefs interface?

I attach some sketch of this idea

    I forgot some details: in this idea the wallpaper are chosen sequentially, and the order button are for move up or down a folder/image, so if PcManFm choose a folder from the list, it will set wallpaper according to the images on the folder, chosen alphabetically. The random checkbox will randomize the wallpaper choice, and the most important thing i forgot, an inputbox with the wallpaper change time in minutes/seconds !

     
  • I believe this random thing is still resource consuming so I don't think it should be implemented in pcmanfm. Your approach is still good enough.
