Wow, almost a month since I posted, don’t worry have been busy helping the Gnome packagers with updates/fixes
So I spotted a post on the gnome-shell mailing list on another extension which looked worthwhile packaging up.
It’s good to see git hub being used as it’s an easy download of the tarball, plus can push updates/fixes through.
The first time I tried to build there were some errors in the Makefile, specifically missing the url for the extension, seems if there is no url in the metadata.json file, it won’t load…
So I forked the extension to my own github repository, fixed the files and pushed them back along with creating a patch file for the rpm. Nice to see a quick response from the extension developer to say the changes where merged
Here is a screenshot so you can either use local images of pick some direct from deviantart
The deviantart images are saved in ~/.local/share/wallpapers, the others are from /usr/share/backgrounds and wallpapers as well as any in ~/Pictures.
The extension is available here;
software.opensuse.org: Search Results
PS, there are more extensions in my repo, which hopefully will get it’s own place on OBS soon…
