Description:

A simple little script, compatible with any attainable combination of Python 2.7/3.x and PyQt 4.x/5.x, which reads your monitor layout from XRandR and then scales and crops a background image to produce individual monitor backgrounds for Plasma.

Supports both explicit images and, via --randomize, a list of folders.

Supports various cropping alignments via --gravity (see --help for details)

For automatic update, run it on a cronjob and set Plasma into slideshow mode. It will generate a folder for each monitor containing the single background file its supposed to display.

Also includes a sample .desktop file for integration into the Geeqie context menu via Zenity. (Ive yet to find a Qt image viewer as snappy as GQView/Geeqie and zenity --list allows double-click selection while kdialog --menu does not.)
