Random Wallpaper for Linux Gnome Desktop

Desktop screenshot

A humble little Python script to select a random image from a given directory (defined at the start of the file) and use it as your Gnome desktop wallpaper. Put it in your session startup programs to get a new desktop each time you login. Coolio.

  1. Jonathan,
    I noticed that in line 14 of your desktop-random.py program, where the image_extensions array is defined and populated, the “gif” and “bmp” parameters are lacking a leading period. Was this an oversight?
