Get a random wallpaper from art.gnome.org for your Gnome desktop

This is a script which automatically downloads a random wallpaper from art.gnome.org and displays it on your desktop. So you no longer have to hunt for good wallpapers. You can set the script to run at bootup for a new wallpaper each time you boot your pc. If you would like to change the wallpaper say every 2 hrs you can add the script to crontab.

The script mainly consists of three parts –

1. changewallpaper.sh – a basic script that calls the other 2 python scripts simultaneously

2. change1.py – this gets a random wallpaper from art.gnome.org

3. change2.py – this is responsible for setting the random image as your wallpaper

Please refer to the readme.txt included in the archive for installation instructions.
