Cortina: Yet Another Gnome Wallpaper Changer

Filed under
Software

Few years back, I always lamented that there are few and little wallpaper changer apps for Ubuntu desktop. Fast forward to today, this is no longer the case. There is the evergreen Desktop Drapes that has been around since the early days, the still useful Wallpapoz that has stopped development and the cross-platforms compatible Wally that can grab your wallpapers from Flickr. Well, it seems that there is another new kid in the block: Cortina.

Cortina is a simple wallpaper changer for the Gnome desktop. It does not come with any fanciful features that other wallpaper changing app don’t have, except that it is pretty lightweight and perform all its task quickly and swiftly.

Installing Cortina
