xscreensaver-getimage-file - put a randomly-selected image on the root window
[--verbose] [--name] directory
program is a helper program for the
xscreensaver hacks that manipulate images. Specifically, it is invoked by
(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.
accepts the following options:
- Print diagnostics.
- Don't 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.
