Description:

NAME : randomWall V1.1
FUNCTION : changes the current wallpaper to a random wallpaper from the installed wallpapers (those that appears in the "Appearance Preferences" panel) at a random time. The random time will stay in the timeframe defined by the two optional parameters min and max. It is changed on each iteration. Settings for the wallpapers that were set in the gnome Appearance panel (Style, colors and color shading) will be used.
USAGE : ./randomwalld.py [--min={minimum delay}] [--max={maximum delay}] &

I also added another small application called rebuildwp.py
USAGE : ./rebuildwb.py or ./rebuildwb.py {ABSOLUTE PATH}
It installs the content of directories into your gnome panel. It does not recurse into subdirectories and will add any file with one of these extensions : "tif","bmp","jpg","tga","gif","svg","png"
Once run, the new wallpapers will be available in the default gnome desktop appearance panel (and therefore used by randomwalld) and the colours and effects can be set as will.

have fun

I must apologize to the 32nd person who downloaded this. I uploaded the wrong package by mistake, and by the time I realized it was too late.
rebuildwp.py is broken in your package.
Really sorry :(

thanks :)

Application and Desktop font is "Butter unsalted", Document font "Gill Sans MT", Title font is "Neuropol X free"
Butter and Neuropol can be found at http://www.dafont.com

Can't remember where I got Gill Sans from, but it's my all time favorite out of the sans serif fonts.
