Desktop Drapes for GNOME

Filed under

This tool allows you to setup a group of images to be used as your desktop backgound. Desktop Drapes can cycle through those wallpapers, changing them at a user-defined period. Desktop Drapes is ideal for those who like to change their wallpaper frequently and would like to set this up to be done automatically.
