Dynamic Wallpaper Editor

The GNOME desktop allows the wallpaper to change with time.

These dynamic wallpapers are XML files, and you don't want to write these files in a text editor: Dynamic Wallpaper Editor is a little utility for the creation or the edition of these XML wallpapers.

Create XML files

  • Add pictures to the list
  • Rearrange the list
  • Set the duration of each picture, and the duration of transition between them
  • Adjust the start time of the slideshow
  • Save as an XML file

Edit XML files

Easily open an XML file, add pictures, or remove pictures, or change their order or their durations, and save the modifications.

The list of pictures can conveniently be displayed as a list or as a grid.

Set an XML file as your wallpaper

You can set an XML file (that you opened or newly created) as your wallpaper from the app.

Adjustment options are available (mosaic, zoom, centered, etc.)



You can install it from using the instructions on this page.
