Wallpaper Tray

Wallpaper Tray is a wallpaper utility that sits on the GNOME panel. It gives you a random wallpaper from a chosen directory at logon, on a timer, and allows you to select a new wallpaper at random from its menu.

            Ubuntu 6.10 Edgy config errors
            The configuration dialog triggers errors:

            andrew@yoda:~$ wallpaper-tray

            (wp_tray:6383): libglade-WARNING **: could not find signal handler 'on_button_close_pressed'.

            (wp_tray:6383): libglade-WARNING **: could not find signal handler 'on_button_apply_pressed'.

            (wp_tray:6383): libglade-WARNING **: could not find signal handler 'on_button_add_dir_pressed'.

            (wp_tray:6383): libglade-WARNING **: could not find signal handler 'on_button_rem_dir_pressed'.

            It is as if the buttons don't have any actions registered to them. This problem occurs with the Add, Remove, and even Close button.

            Great little project.
            I've been looking for something like this for a long time.

            the page is back up (redesigned). yes i know there are a few subtle problems, i'll get around to sorting them out.

            i'll sort out an fc4 rpm before long.

            Homepage and Alternative
            I'm unable to access the homepage, so I don't know what this package is like.

            An alternative to this is by Davyd Madeley of GNOME.
