Uses rox to change the background?

Hi again harii4,

There is a bug in script for wallpapers that have spaces in the names needs IFS=$'\n' added to the top of the script ( i should probably post an updated)
Yes uses Rox for setting the wallpaper - most puppy users seem to like desktop icons so i stick with Rox - although there isn't much to the script so it could easily be changed / adapted for some other wallpaper changer etc.

cheers.
