Thread: Link as wallpaper

    Default Link as wallpaper

    How does one configure a system to go to a link to get a wallpaper graphic? I'm using an OpenSuse build from the Studio.

    The machine is essentially a kiosk, and I want to pick wallpaper based upon where it is deployed. Its IP will determine which server it hits, and that server will provide the graphic.

    Thanks!!

    Hi
    The default is set in a schema file in /etc/gconf/schemas
    and it's called desktop_gnome_background.schemas

    Now it sets the file called
    Code:
    /usr/share/pixmaps/backgrounds/gnome/background-default.jpg
    So if you create a script (a run once one maybe) that identifies your
    location then uses wget to download and overwrite the file you should
    be good to go...
