So I know Ubuntu has a slideshow option in the wallpaper settings, containing all default wallpapers for that release. This means that the functionality is already there and actually working! But I can't seem to find a way to create my own slideshow with my own collection of wallpapers. Does someone know how I can do this?

Thanks for the help!

You might want to check out Variety.

Variety is packed with great features, yet slim and easy to use. It can use local images or automatically download wallpapers from lots of online sources, allows you to rotate them on a regular interval, and provides easy ways to separate the great images from the junk. Variety can also display wise and funny quotations or a nice digital clock on the desktop.

To install -

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:peterlevi/ppa

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install variety
