Wallpapoz application enables you to configure Gnome desktop wallpapers in unique way. You could have Gnome desktop wallpaper changes when the specified time has passed. The most important feature is you could have Gnome desktop wallpaper changes when you change workspace.

It means you could group your wallpapers into specific workspace. It offers quick orientation cues where you are. You can manage it so when you change to first workspace, your desktop wallpaper will be picked from wallpapers group for that workspace. When you change to second workspace, it will be picked from wallpapers group for second workspace.

So you could have situation like this. You change to third workspace and you will get cartoon desktop wallpaper (wallpapers group for that workspace consists of cartoon wallpapers only). You change to fourth workspace and you will get abstract desktop wallpaper (wallpapers group for that workspace consists of abstract wallpapers only). I think you get the idea. Off course you can disable this feature if you just want your desktop wallpaper changes when the specified time (specified by you) has passed and does not change when you change workspace.
