Ifliftwall is a small script which will set the latest picture from www.interfacelift.com as your KDE desktop wallpaper. If you set it to autostart it will give you a new fresh background as you login in, on a daily basis.
1.) put in ~/bin
2.) make executable
3.) Save your desktop settings by running:
ifliftwall --setting < aspect > < width > < height > (see below for valid desktop settings)
4.) test it!
5.) (at your option) run: ifliftwall --set-auto to make it autostart at login
On OpenSUSE 10.3, should work on most Linux distros, and other UNIX flavours too albeit the arguments for the ping command have to be modified.
Note #1: The picture files that are downloaded will be stored in the /tmp/kde-< username > directory. This script does not delete any of these files, so it is up to you. However, the way the file name is constructed: "ifliftwall.00N", where N equals the current weekday (N=1..7), does so that only a maximum of one week of PTOD's will be stored on your computer.
Note #2: List of resolution. If your desktop size is not listed below try using the closest higher resolution.
