xscreensaver-getimage-file - put a randomly-selected image on the root window
xscreensaver-getimage-file [-display host:display.screen] [--verbose] [--name] directory
The xscreensaver-getimage-file program is a helper program
for the xscreensaver hacks that manipulate images. Specifically, it
is invoked by
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.
xscreensaver-getimage-file accepts the following options:
Dont load an image: instead just print the file name to stdout.
The directory to search. The directory will be searched recursively,
and all files in it are assumed to be images.
