BgChanger is a simple set of scripts adding wallpaper rotation functionality to GNOME. It is designed to be simple above all else, with no complicated menus or options.

INSTALLATION:
(0) Un-package the release
tar -xvzf bgchanger*.tar.gz

(1) Move the bgchanger directory you downloaded to /usr/share
sudo mv bgchanger /usr/share/bgchanger

(2) Make a link so the executables end up in your path. You can do this several different ways. The simplest way is outlined below.

sudo ln -s /usr/share/bgchanger/bin/bgchanger /usr/local/bin/
sudo ln -s /usr/share/bgchanger/bin/bgconfig /usr/local/bin/

(3) Setup the config directory.
mkdir ~/.bgchanger
cp /usr/share/bgchanger/bgchanger.conf ~/.bgchanger/

(4) Start bgchanger in the background

(5) Run bgconfig and personalize (bgchanger comes with several default wallpapers and a config file that uses them).
bgconfig

(6) Create the BgConfig item in the gnome-panel.
cp /usr/share/bgchanger/bgchanger.desktop /usr/share/applications/
