Create your own slideshow wallpaper in Gnome


Ubuntu has the ability to create a slideshow wallpaper thanks to GNOME 2.28. Here is how you can take control of your wallpaper slideshows with a simple to use GUI tool.
The easy way
Let’s start by showing you the easy way to create a slideshow wallpaper using a GUI tool called CreBS (Create Background Slideshow). CreBS is an easy install in Ubuntu. To install the software open up a terminal and type
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:crebs/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install crebs
This will install the CreBS repository, update your available packages, and then install CreBS. Once CreBS is installed, head over to your menu and launch CreBS.
To create your wallpaper slideshow just use the add button and select images to add to the wallpaper. You can also drag and drop your wallpapers to change their order.
Once you have all the images you want, change the settings below for the amount of time between slideshow changes and how long you want transitions.
After all the settings are set up the way you want, type in a name at the very bottom and then click the green check to apply and save the desktop wallpaper.
If you ever want to apply the theme again later you can right click on the desktop and select change desktop background. If you want to share the wallpaper slideshow with friends you will have to edit the xml manually so I would suggest just sending them the pictures and allowing them to recreate the theme on their system.
