Slidewall – Wallpaper clocks for Ubuntu

Slidewall allows Ubuntu users to not only use live wallpaper clocks for their desktop background, but also use a live earth wallpaper and create a wallpaper slideshow.

Slidewall has a couple of nice wallpapers installed by default. Among them are:

If you don’t fancy the default wallpapers, you can always get more wallpapers. These wallpapers can be added to Slidewall using the configuration window.

To install Slidewall, just type the following in the Terminal:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:fioan89/slidewall
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install slidewall

Slidewall is one of the apps developed for the Ubuntu App Showdown, and is participating in the community vote. For the full list of apps, click here.
