Wallpaper of the Day Pet (wotd) - Aug 2018:
A utility to automatically display a different wallpaper of your choice for each day of the week.

This pet should work with any WoofCE or WoofQ 32/64-Bit Pups. It has been tested with both jwm & Openbox.

The 5MB pet (wotd-V1.pet) is available via the direct download link below:

http://drive.google.com/uc?export=download&id=1D5w3WfoRfmq3YntZvKjcNfpRg1sK_STO

It contains a single script ( /root/Startup/wotd.sh ) plus 7 starter wallpapers which it adds to /usr/share/backgrounds
Their 6 letter case sensitive names are as follows:

Mon.jpg
Tue.jpg
Wed.jpg
Thu.jpg
Fri.jpg
Sat.jpg
Sun.jpg

Future substitution of your own preferred wallpaper(s) is simply a matter of renaming your choice to
match exactly one of the above names and then copying it to /usr/share/backgrounds so that it
over-writes the original starter wallpaper(s).
If you wish to use a .png file first use "save as" in mtPaint to save it in jpg format as for example... Sat.jpg

Should anyone be running wbar, provision is made in the script to restore transparency to the icon
bar following a wallpaper change. The code to do that uses xdotool which should be installed via ppm if it is not already present.

Installation:
1. Install the pet and restart X

Notes:
1. Depending on your windows manager you may see your original default wallpaper display briefly before the day's paper appears.

2. If the target pc is normally running 24/7 use Pschedule to create a daily cron job to run the script
at say 4 minutes past midnight. - example below

3. If you require additional wallpapers please see next post.

Additional Wallpapers:

https://photos.app.goo.gl/FGBQ2uc4lodCAIuk1

The above link is to my own Google Photos album which currently contains 107 wallpapers
including the 7 used in the wotd pet.
Please help yourselves to any you consider to be of use. On the "More options" menu (3 vertically aligned dots) there is a slideshow
option together with an option to "Download All" which if selected will roll them all into a 31MB zip file.
The slideshow may be cast to a Chromecast dongle if you are using Chrome or Chromium.

To download individual papers left click on the paper to enlarge it and then use the new options menu or press Shift + D
to just download that particular paper.

If you would prefer an mp4 of the wallpaper slideshow that may be viewed here:

ETP, thanks for sharing this. Initially downloaded a few of the wallpapers, then decided I may as well download the wallpaper.zip. I'll give the wotd.pet a run as well.
