 Desktop Background Slide Show

Linux Journal tells us how to make a slide show the background for our desktop.

"This article explains how to cycle randomly through a directory structure of graphic images and display them on your desktop background. GNOME, KDE and other X desktops/window managers are covered. This is a good exercise in shell scripting and piping, and it shows off the programs find and xargs. We also cover how to select only images of a given size, say 1024x768."
