wallch - Wallpaper Changer for the GNOME Desktop
wallch [options | wallch album]
Wallch is a free and open-source program with the functionality to automatically change your PC's Desktop Background in an adjustable time. It has lots of functionalities like taking screenshot, webcam image, live earth wallpaper, picture of the day and start-up options. After the release of the Unity Desktop, wallch takes advantage of its functionalities and included shortcuts for it. What is more, wallch includes 2 types of notification, sound and desktop. Wallch includes GUI and non-GUI modes. The non-GUI mode is used to the start-up options and unity shortcuts and GUI mode is used generally.
Wallch has some options that are basically used from the unity sidebar calls and the start-up options but they can also used from a terminal for any purpose. As argument can also be passed a wallch album to be loaded by Wallch, while opening the application. All options specified below run normally or send a DBUS message to the already running wallch process. --stop It stops the wallpaper changing process if program is open or closes the program if already running with --earth, --earth_w8, --picofday, --picofday_w8 or --constant (non-GUI modes) --pause It pauses the process if already running both from the GUI and non-GUI mode. --next Proceeds to next image (random image selection if this is selected) if process is running. --previous It proceeds to the previous image (the selected options doesn't matter, previous pictures are logged). --once It just changes the desktop background choosing from the list. It works both if the wallch is open or not. Two or more pictures have to be selected for this to work. --constant It changes constantly the desktop background by randomly choosing pictures from the list and using the adjustable time. It works both if wallch is open or not. It also works with folder monitoring. --earth It enables live earth wallpaper process. It works both if wallch is open or not. --earth_w8 This option is mainly used when the user closes Wallch while 'Live Earth Wallpaper' mode is running. In this case the user is asked whether he wants to let the live earth process running or not, if he/she choose to let it run, wallch re-runs with this option but waits (w8) a few moments before running with the live earth wallpaper pption so as to ensure that the previous wallch process has closed. --earth_unity This option is used only from the unity bar shortcut. It is similar with --earth and --earth_w8 but instead of waiting for internet connection, it exits with a warning notification if there isn't internet connection. --picofday This option is used to enable 'Picture Of The Day' process. This process downloads an image from the internet which updates daily and set it as your desktop background. --picofday_w8 It does the same with --earth_w8 but for 'Picture Of The Day' process.
