SYNOPSIS

xscreensaver-getimage-file [-display host:display.screen] [--verbose] [--name] directory

DESCRIPTION

The xscreensaver-getimage-file program is a helper program for the xscreensaver hacks that manipulate images. Specifically, it is invoked by xscreensaver-getimage(1) as needed. This is not a user-level command.

This program selects a random image from disk, and loads it on the root window. It does this by figuring out which image-loading programs are installed on the system, and invoking the first one it finds.

OPTIONS

xscreensaver-getimage-file accepts the following options:
--verbose
  Print diagnostics.
--name
  Don’t load an image: instead just print the file name to stdout.
directory
  The directory to search. The directory will be searched recursively, and all files in it are assumed to be images.
