While you're waiting for a howto, you could also take a look at this.

How to create a Mixed Mode CD?

On second thoughts, don't. I discovered it's an out-dated non-standard idea. I can mount them, so that's enough.

I have already see that one but there is no Jessie instructions. And i need instructions for hybrid graphics. I have an Intel and an ATI card...
I'm sorry, I didn't mentioned that my case was an hybrid graphics case!
In the meantime I've created a thread in the forum about my case...

I needed an How To on how to setup my Debian to be able to control both graphics or to switch on the ATI card whenever I want because i'm going to work with Bricscad that needs some serious power processing from gpu...

Hi,

If someone has the time, I'm trying to figure out how to write a script that will change my desktop background through a determined progression and NOT random. Every script I've come across in my search randomly selects the image. I'd also like to be able to set the time between changes, and for the image to be centered on the screen and unscaled.

My end goal is to have my background show a slowly aging portrait. I've taken numerous screenshots at different points of a video where the subject is aging rapidly, which is why I need the change to not be random. The images are numbered beginning with "1".

If it matters, I'm doing this in Raspbian via the Pixel desktop.

I appreciate the help.

It seems like it would be easy to replace the part of one of those scripts that does the random choosing with a selector that just uses images from a directory. I think it will display them in order by default, as in doriangrey1, doriangrey2, doriangrey3.

Does variety from jessie-backports also display in random order? It seems to have quite a few settings.
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: AzPainter 2.0.4, Pale Moon 27.3.0, Liquorix kernel 4.11-4, mpv 0.25.0, Kodi 17.1, Ksnip 1.3.1, Mesa 13.0.6

I would first learn how to make a .gif animation, if you don't know how.
Key words, "How to make a .gif animation"

After you learn how to make a animation,
how use a gif animation as your desktop background on Debian

by ckilmer75 » If it matters, I'm doing this in Raspbian via the Pixel desktop.

Well, it does , if I did go into details, and wrote a "How to", on this and for this forum, it would be for Debian, since this is a Debian User Forum,... and it probably would not work for some other OS, like Raspbian, or Pixels Desktop, .....
,...
Using a WM, OpenBox,on Debian 7 would be how I would write a script for,..
Would it work on Rasbpbian, and Pixels DE,..? I doubt it.

If you were using Debian, you could maybe use a package called .
"byzanz" (byzanz-record)
https://www.unixmen.com/make-animated-gif-screencasts-easily-byzanz/

Also Image Magick, https://www.imagemagick.org/script/animate.php
Or with the "convert" command, (what I used)
===========================================
https://www.imagemagick.org/Usage/anim_basics/#gif_anim
=====================================================
Example: Image

Do some more searches, read some tutorials on "How to write a script "
But it would help get better results if you at least have some idea of what
kind of script, IE: bash, ksh,zsh,sh ,dash,perl,pascal,python,etc.....

Code: Select all
bash -c 'for i in {1..99}; do feh --bg-center /full/path/to/image/folder/$i.png; sleep 600; done &'

https://packages.debian.org/jessie/feh

This will display all images from 1.png to 99.png in sequence with a 600 second (10 minute) delay, adjust as required ;)
