https://bbs.archlinux.org – Hey guys,I'm trying to use cron to change my wallpaper for Cinnamon but I am having some issues.The cronjob is:*/2 * * * * DISPLAY=:0 gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.background picture-uri "file://"$(find /home/bryan/.wallpapers/ -name "*.jpg" -o -name "*.jpeg" -o -name "*.png" -o -name "*.gif" | shuf -n1)I know it's a doozy, but it should work.  The problem is that the wallpaper won't update unless I open up the GUI wallpaper changer for gnome. Does anyone know of any work arounds that could help me out? fuzzyonethree (HowTos)
