NAME

bg-changer - Perl script for updating the Gnome background

SYNOPSIS

./bg-changer

DESCRIPTION

Downloads an image from Unsplash, save it into /var/tmp, and then uses gsettings to update the Gnome background image.

POC

This is a proof-of-concept based on some ideas I had after reading How To Set Random Wallpapers from Unsplash.com for Ubuntu.

TODO

  • Create a Makefile that can spawn a crontab entry
  • Add testing.
  • Makefile should be able to install this into /usr/local/bin
  • Figure out how to determine if this is a metered connection, to skip downloading ** See StackOverflow: Detect if current connection is metered with NetworkManager
  • Commandline, ENV, and config file options for file size and search keywords.
  • Commandline, ENV, and config file options for caching a few past files so they can still rotate when there's no network connection.
