Thread: Desktop Cube - Automatically rotate

    Question Desktop Cube - Automatically rotate

    Hi,

    I've been tasked with setting up a wall board display monitor for our monitoring applications and it's got to look good! I was hoping to use opensuse 11.4 & the KDE desktop effect of the cube and I'm trying to find a way to make the screens rotate in a timed manner.

    Is this possible and if not can anyone suggest a good way to switch between multiple displays automatically?

    Thanks,
    Matt

    I think KWin is not designed to do this automatically. (Would be really
    anoying in most cases.)

    But, you can switch desktop from bash with this command:

    ---------------
    qdbus org.kde.kwin /KWin nextDesktop
    ---------------

    So, for example, this command switches desktops every 20 seconds:

    ---------------
    while true; do sleep 20; qdbus org.kde.kwin /KWin nextDesktop > /dev/null;
    done
    ---------------
