GAI bgswitcher is a simple dockapp / gnome applet that lets you switch the background. It displays random thumbnails from a user specified directory.

It requires the GAI library and either fbsetbg or Esetroot. Hopefully I will make an "Ebuild" for gentoo sometime or other.

Limitations:
  • It seems that if you use the menu "Pause" while not in a button mode it will not pause, but change the background. Also, gai libraries have a problem in that this might not dock correctly when first starting X.


    Installation

    Make sure that you have gai 0.5.x installed.

    Then do:
    ./configure
    make
    (change to root)
    make install

    If you're running the Gnome Panel, you have to restart the panel in order to see the newly installed applet.

    The executable will be called gai-bgswitcher and will be placed in /usr/local/bin (When the GAI library is compiled without gnome support.)
