Cheers for the link.

Interesting...

This (or something like this) might be handy for painting Peppermint with retro themes.

For instance, making PM10 look like PM6, PM7, PM8, or PM9.

Maybe...

Still not had time to test I'm afraid .. I still have this topic marked as 'Unread' to keep reminding myself (in Posts > All unread) though.

Could be very interesting to make it scroll thru all 10 years of our own wallpapers for PeppermintOS's 10th Anniversary eh @VinDSL?

Also to scroll thru another folder of all @rayzer's wallpapers?

If the development team is up for it I think we should have a PPA of all our previous wallpapers from 1.0 onward if we can find the iso files that is  ;D
