I have found an app Love Wallpapers HD, which working in ubuntu-tweak, it is good but there is no settings or option in that app.

But I need an app which can change wallpaper and also download from different websites, like Tumblr or Deviantart. Or if there might be a script which can do that.

Variety supports Media RSS feeds. deviantART provides such feeds directly - read here:, or just open any deviantART category, view the page source and search for "rss". For tumblr you can use a feed generator such as to get a Media RSS feed. – Peter Levi Feb 11 '13 at 22:46
