Re: Desktop background image extension?

Great idea, can you share that script?

Alternatively, perhaps I could just hack Desktop Drapes to have a "Use F-Spot Favorites" function...

Either way, thanks for the recommendation!

Hi, I'm making the switch from Mac to Ubuntu and one of the few features
I miss is the ability to automatically set my desktop background image

already exist for F-Spot, or how would you recommend I go ahead and
build it?

I see you use SQLite under the hood; would the easiest/recommended way
be to just create a Cron script that:

1) Opens that database
2) Picks a random "favorite" image
3) Updates the desktop background
4) Exits

Or, is this something better done as an extension?

Thanks for the great tool, and I'm curious how I can help!
