Thanks for your response! I've tried Webilder, but there are no
repositories for either Karmic or Jaunty. Your second link however guided
me to "Drapes" which I'm putting through the paces now... Perhaps I'll
need to download a bunch of wallpapers and let it do the rest of the magic

I'm looking for an app that will change my
Ubuntu (Karmic) desktop image
periodically, with images from Flickr.
E.g. I'd like it to automatically flick through the photos here
) every hour or so.
Any advice?? Does this exist yet?
A quick search for "ubuntu desktop background image flickr changer":
Webuilder seems to be closest to what you want. Only downside, you
need to trigger the download of the images manually.
NB: haven't used any of these tools myself.
