Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.


Dynamic Wallpaper is a Linux application that displays a wallpaper in svg format on your desktop based on the weather, moon phase, time of day, etc. and it also supports themes.

After installing it, you can run the application by going to Applications > Accessories > Dynamic Wallpaper.


You can set the location (if you don't know the code, you can click the link in the options menu - see in the above screenshot), the units, text offset proxy and you can also choose from 4 different themes.

Overall it's an interesting application which I'll be using from now on.
