i think Bloom introduced some wallpaper changing script in this thread, and is effectively showing off that. (*)

except nobody remembers, or is able to find it anymore, esp. since Bloom has been spamming this thread for quite a while now.

maybe a mod/admin could split off the bit where Bloom advertises their script?

Or maybe Bloom could start their own thread:
"My personal wallpaper changer" or something?


I just wish they would learn to at least use thumbnails

garry, those are thumbnails.
maybe too large for your taste, but nevertheless.


(*)
not quite: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=9196&start=5235#p659665
Bloom never showed us the script. only on request, it would seem.
this makes the whole thing even more annoying.

Bloom, please, can't you see that you are destroying this screenshot thread?
Why don't you just start your own thread, and post all the wallpapers you like?
and maybe also share that script?

They are not really thumbnails, but any way I have started a new topic,
not to argue, but to try to discuss this more, without derailing this " What does your desktop look like " topic. Maybe, bloom can make some changes in his/her script, if they have one, from what I read in the link you show, all they have is
something that downloads 1000's of images , and changes wallpapers, ever few minutes,..
Bloom>> I like this wallpaper very much as well. My desktop changes its wallpaper every five minutes and I have thousands of them on a NAS, mostly "dramatic" landscapes.
The XFCE 4.1x desktop enviroment can change the wallpaper itself and you can set a timer, but if you have several thousands of wallpapers, it is unbearingly slow. So I wrote a bash script to do it for me: that's blazingly fast.
If you want it, just let me know.

And :
All my desktop computers and notebooks share the same desktop environment, so I can't show another desktop -- just other wallpapers as my system changes these every 5 minutes and gets them from a NAS volume where several thousands are stored.

Wouldn't it just be simpler , to post a link to this "Nas volume", and then those
that want to see the 1000's of images can browse it ? The purpose of this thread is to show new desktop environments, when people make changes....
new wallpapers, downloaded from some site is some thing else.
Any way, better to discuss this in another topic.
Wallpapers and backgrounds, images in general
Thanks

All my desktop computers use the same desktop environment, so I can't show anything else. I was hoping the different wallpapers would be appreciated by people who, like me, collect nice ones. Exposing my in-home systems to the internet is not an option for me.
If you consider these posts spamming (even if I don't do it every day and sometimes only once a week of a month?), I'll stop posting here. Simple.

Nobody said anything about it being spam, it is not spam. But any way,
do what you want, I don't have time for pointless arguments.

These suggestions are good / valid as well :
Or maybe Bloom could start their own thread:
"My personal wallpaper changer" or something?

Very nice, pawRoot. But i prefer not to have 3rd party software on my system....for example, Google Chrome, Termite terminal, Overpass fonts, Infinality etc. Allso, i always follow one golden rule-DON’T BRAKE DEBIAN...

I've spent some time removing as many GUI programmes as possible and moving my workflow over to vim keybindings. This is Openbox with the Ranger file manager, sc-im spreadsheet (also with vim bindings) and vim editing a markdown file template for recipes, which I can easily turn into a PDF (shown in the background in Zathura). This sort of setup runs even on dated hardware. Apart from sc-im, everything is in the repos.
