Desktop Cube - Automatically rotate


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?


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;

Perfect! Thank you very much, this is exactly what I needed. :slight_smile:
