Hello Donald, I just added Mate desktop support: http://i.imgur.com/YJVJC.png

It will be available on the next version of Wallch. It is very easy for us to add support for almost any Desktop Environment, but the user will also be able to set his custom command so as to change the wallpaper.

Thanks for the request!

Hello there!
I've released a testing PPA (quite stable though) with some new features, which also solves the problems you had.
You can find it here:

Specifically, current latest versions of this ppa are:

You can add this ppa, so as to receive updates from it as well, as following:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:wallch/3+
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install wallch

I repeat that these are testing versions of Wallch that fix some bugs and have some new features, but it is logical to have some bugs. Please, if you find any, report it at: https://bugs.launchpad.net/wallpaper-changer/+filebug

Thanks a lot!
