In Windows, you can set your wallpaper as a slideshow. So if you have many pictures and want to make all of them your wallpaper, you can do it with slideshow wallpaper. One of my friend said that Ubuntu already has it by default. But when i use Linux Mint, i can’t find it in wallpaper selection menu. So i search for how to use slideshow wallpaper in Linux Mint.

And then i found Desktop Drapes. It is a gnome-based application that can make auto-change wallpaper based on your pictures collection. Overall, it is a good application. But minimum interval for 1 wallpaper is only 5 minutes. In Windows you can have about 30 seconds interval.

apt-get install drapes
