Wallpaper changer, downloader and manager
  13 reviews

Variety is a wallpaper manager for Linux systems. It supports numerous desktops and wallpaper sources, including local files and online services: Flickr, Wallhaven, Unsplash, and more.

Where supported, Variety sits as a tray icon to allow easy pausing and resuming. Otherwise, its desktop entry menu provides a similar set of options.

You can also install the following (suggested) packages to enhance Variety's functionality on certain desktop setups:
* feh | nitrogen: used for wallpaper changing on i3, openbox, and dwm
* gnome-shell-extension-appindicator | gnome-shell-extension-top-icons-plus:
adds tray icon / indicator support to GNOME Shell, so that Variety's tray
icon can be displayed

UPDATED: The bug in Variety seems to be due to a bug in BeautifulSoup4 (bs4) and it's utilization of html5lib. So, not Variety's fault. It's an exceptional tool and highly recommend for everyone using Mint.

Simplemente genial, los fondos son hermosos y en la mejor calidad posible. Una buena forma de poder visualizar imágenes y lugares sin hacer más que estar en el computador trabajando.

Variety is by far the most comprehensive wallpaper changing program I've used. It works very well, and definitely lives up to its name.

Потрясающая программа, всем советую. В отличии от Wally легко настраивается и настройки работают.

Does a great job of mixing the wallpaper from (in my case) over a dozen sources, both local and online. The wallpaper collection is also surprisingly nice, given how little interaction it requires. My only complaint is that I can't take it with me to the Windows boxes I have to use; this is a Linux-only gem.
