Cycleroot: is a little shellscript, to cycle background images.
I got the idea from an even more little script debian-background , I had been looking for something like that from time ago. But as I wasn't finding what I needed I decided to create it.
- bgsetting scripts:
- I have found lots of scripts/programs for changing background, and they all use the same bgsetter programs.
- bgsetter programs:
- There are a lot of programs for setting background (wmsetbg, fbsetbf, ESetRoot, qiv, xv, bbsetbg, ...), and by separate they can do many things.
- Solution = Glue:
But there isn't a tool (at least I haven't found it) that allows you to handle your background images easily. I mean something that `glues` all the functionality provided by bgsetter programs. Here the glue could be anything (bash, python, perl, tcl, ...), but the best candidate was bash
Here is a list of the most important changes made to cycleroot and when they happened:
You can download the cycleroot script here or cycleroot-ng.
Plugins and Extensions
I'm thinking of a way to share personal modifications done to cycleroot with other cycleroot users. (See downloads for a beta version)
Docs/HOWTO use cycleroot
By now read the documentation/help written on the top of the script.
