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.

Usage:

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

Tested:

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.
