I have installed GKrellm on my laptop to display the status of capslock/numlock leds (as there is no physical led for numlock). When looking for information on GKrellm, I found that a plugin called GKrellM Background Changer has been developped that seems more simple than Variety that I am currently using. However it is not listed in the plugins available through Synaptic.
The link for this plugin is : http://www.bender-suhl.de/stefan/english/comp/gkrellmbgchg.html
I can dowload the files listed there, but not install them by following the procedure shown on the site.
Thanks for any help.
