# File : daylight-wallpaper-install.sh
# Purpose: This file creates a script that downloads an image and sets it as wallpaper.
# This file also installs that script as a crontab for the current user.

# Note: It's been suggested to use the 'xplanet' package instead of downloading the images:
# xplanet -body earth -num_times 1 -projection mercator -output $wallpaper_name -geometry 1366x768
# http://askubuntu.com/a/590950/5786
# It's an impressive package and it produces nice images but the nighttime area seems
# wrong - too bright and missing city lights. For that, the Opentopia images win.
