I'm user of Wallch. Wallpaper changing makes my 2x 2 GHx proc choking if the video is being played at the time. Or put programming work instead of watching video, that results delayed actions.

I've reported the bug to Wallch devs and it seems depended on GNOME, not Wallch.

I'd be glad for a way to simply disable fade effect for wallpaper change.

Edit: for now I've given up and just modified wallpaper change delay to 2 hours... No answers :( .

My advise is to use other tool than walch. I've used walch and it's heavy on the system, just use fehor some other cli tool to change your wallpapers – LnxSlck Aug 2 '14 at 21:27

I use the program variety:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:peterlevi/ppa


sudo apt-get update


sudo apt-get install variety

It has lots of good options.
