Sorry for the bugs. I will fix this as soon as possible, but for me the script worked well (using debian squeeze). Anyway, I'll try to find out whats wrong with it

hmm maybe it is my os
but it is still not working.
It doesn't print these lines anymore, but it still doesn't change anything.

I think it is the gconftool-2 I've got the following output(translated to english by me):
(gconftool-2:8114): GConf-WARNING **: »/root/.gconf/desktop/gnome/background/%gconf.xml« could not be written: The temporary file »/root/.gconf/desktop/gnome/background/%gconf.xml.new« could not be moved to the desteny place »/root/.gconf/desktop/gnome/background/%gconf.xml«: No such file or directory


here is the original output (german):

(gconftool-2:8122): GConf-WARNING **: »/root/.gconf/desktop/gnome/background/%gconf.xml« konnte nicht geschrieben werden: Die Temporärdatei »/root/.gconf/desktop/gnome/background/%gconf.xml.new« konnte nicht an den endgültigen Ort »/root/.gconf/desktop/gnome/background/%gconf.xml« verschoben werden: No such file or directory

oh... i understand your problem... you're still logged in as root when starting the program. so before starting the program enter exit

I hope it will solve this problem

Yes i thought about this aswell, but I logged in as root after the skript failed as my normal user.

As root it printed these errors, but as normal user, it didn't do anything exept printing the 4 paths to the pictures

well..

if it is afternoon and the picture you want to be set at afternoon, of course it won't change anything, but if this isn't so, there will be another bug i didn't fix so far... i will try to find it.
