Subject description: not random nor all in backgrounds.
 

I just wrote this this evening. It uses yad to allow a selection of multiple wallpapers from 'backgrounds' dir, and it will cycle through them at your specified interval or every 30 seconds. Remembers selections across reboots until reset. commandline usage is :
changeon 15 = to start with 15 second interval
changeoff =to stop
changeon 20 reset =to reselect wallpapers and change at 20 second interval.

Also has desktop files for those functions.

So this is a little different to SFRs random Wallpaper changer (which i only just discovered when about to post this - nice gui!.)

The 'play' list is at /root/.wp so you can use my slocategui to create a list of image files from anywhere on your system, to play through, that opens in geany and just save as /root/.wp. Empty lines have already been catered for.

I have just re-written this script from scratch. I am now using rox SOAP method to change hi-res wallpapers much more quickly and smoothly. Same functionality but much more efficient code, and much less code! It is fast enough to approximate simple animation!

I will post after I have made the pet.

Here is a demo of sequenced wallpapers (just photos really). But you see the potential.
