Variety-automatically Wallpaper Changer

VarietyVariety

Variety - the program for automatic Wallpaper changer. Specify multiple images or folders with pictures and it will change the desktop Wallpaper at regular intervals. It can also automatically download beautiful Wallpaper of several online sources. The program "friends" with any desktop environment: Unity, Cinnamon, MATE, GNOME Shell etc.
Variety works quietly in the background, consuming a small amount of system resources. After installation, activation and settings in the system tray, its icon appears. You can click on it to open the context menu or scrolling the mouse wheel forward or backward to change the Wallpaper.

There are many such apps, but Variety stands out among them. It can display Wallpapers from local sources or a variety of online resources, allows the user to change the desktop background via the adjustable time intervals, and also makes it easy to separate a great image from irrelevant.

You can enable the startup of the app, change the interval to change your Wallpaper and change the desktop background when the application starts.

Another cool feature of this program is the effects that you can apply to your current background. You can also display wise or funny quotes from a variety of sources, and to display a clock on your desktop. You can customize their appearance.
