Use Wallpaper Clocks, Live Earth Wallpaper In Ubuntu With Slidewall

Slidewall is a wallpaper changer that comes with some interesting features: besides allowing you to use all images in a folder as a wallpaper slideshow, the application supports live wallpapers: live earth wallpaper, wallpaper clocks and more.According to its PPA description, the application was especially created for Unity, but it should work with GNOME Classic / GNOME Shell too. It’s also worth mentioning that Slidewall always starts minimized which is a bit confusing and might make you think it doesn’t start – but it does, just look for its icon in the launcher.Supported live wallpapers:Live earth wallpaper: using this, Sidewall downloads the sunlight map from www.opentopia.com every 20 minutes and sets it as your wallpaper. Screenshot:Wallpaper Clocks: use various wallpapers with a real-time working clock blended into the wallpaper. By default, Slidewall comes with just a few wallpaper clocks but you can download more from HERE. Once you download a wallpaper clock (don’t extract the downloaded archive), open Slidewall and on the Slidewall Live Wallpapers tab, click Add and select the downloaded wallpaper clocks.Previously, wallpaper clocks were supported on GNOME through a screenlet, but the screenlet is buggy and it displays a black background when its updated, for some users.Here
