Variety is a wallpaper changer for Ubuntu which is featureful, yet slim and very easy to use. It can automatically download wallpapers from various online sources, allows rotating them on a regular interval or on demand, and provides easy to use ways to separate the great images from the junk.
Notable other features include: showing a nice digital clock on the desktop, option to apply various interesting image filters to the wallpapers, great visualization of the history and the image folders which allows the user to very easily change the wallpaper manually.
The supported image sources are Flickr, Wallbase.cc, World sunlight map (a live wallpaper that changes as the day progresses), Wallpapers.net, NASA Astronomy Picture of the Day, Desktoppr.co, as well as any site that publishes Media RSS feeds – e.g. Picasa, SmugMug, deviantART, InterfaceLIFT, etc.
