Description:

A small utility to create and set the background.xml file needed for wallpaper slideshows in Gnome.

To use:
1) Extract 'gnome-wallpaper-slideshow' from the archive
2) Double click it and then click run when presented with a dialog
3) Click the 'Select' button and choose your folder containing the images you wish to use in your slideshow
4) Edit the picture duration and transition duration if desired
5) Click 'OK'...

A gnome-wallpaper-slideshow.xml file will be written to ~/.gnome-wallpaper-slideshow and the file will be set as your current background.

Update 5/26: 1.02 uploaded.

Update 5/25: 1.01 uploaded.

Update 5/24: When you click the 'Select' button to choose your folder, it will initially display your Pictures folder. In Ubuntu 9.10 and prior if you click OK without navigating to another folder and back to the Pictures folder, nothing will happen. This is a bug in GTK+ and has been fixed in GTK+ 2.20 shipping with Ubuntu 10.04.
Last changelog:

1.02:
- New command line mode which can be used via cron or startup applications to refresh xml when new files are added (ex, ./gnome-wallpaper-slideshow ~/Pictures) use --help for all options
- Images are now sorted alphabetically in the xml file
- Uses case insensitivity when searching for images

1.01:
- Saves background xml file to ~/.gnome-wallpaper-slideshow instead of creating background-1.xml in each of your picture folders
- Saves state on exit to ~/.gnome-wallpaper-slideshow so your last used folder and durations are reloaded on next run
- Will not create duplicate entries in your gnome backgrounds preferences dialog
- Fixed resizing bug on transitions
- Refactored to use libxml2 instead of xml.dom, should be faster and writes the xml files nicer
