Unsplash Ubuntu

logo

Why did I make this?

I am a big fan of the serious opensource communities. One such photo sharing portal is unsplash.com. Also, I always wanted to make some cool Ubuntu utility. So one fine day I thought "Okay, why not achieve both". This project is result of that. This is by no means a complex project(yet).

What does it do?

A simple utility written in python that picks a high resolution random image from unsplash.com and puts it as your wallpaper; updates it every hour with a new wallpaper.

Cool, how can I install?

  1. Clone and download the repository

  2. Install the dependencies:

    1. python-wget
    2. python-tk (Tkinter)
    3. python-urllib3
  3. Open terminal and change directory:

    1. cd UnsplashUbuntu
    2. add permissions: chmod +x unsplashubuntu.py
    3. Run the program: ./unsplashubuntu.py
  4. (optional) Add the program on startup by going into launcher->startup applications
