Quick Info Cheat Sheet and MENU and SHUFFLE WALLPAPERS

taken from intro guide at https://forums.bunsenlabs.org/viewtopic.php?id=6461

I've renamed the various configuration tools to terminology that I think new users would have an easier time familiarizing with.
I thought about posting this to the Getting Started subforum but as there are only a few posts on there I didn't want to spam it.

        - Info -

Desktop Widgets   = Conky
Taskbar           = Tint2                     
Menu              = jgmenu
Desktop Wallpaper = nitrogen
GUI               = Openbox
GUI Theme         = lxappearance
Keybinds          = xbindkeys
GUI Keybinds      = bl-rc.xml
Default Fonts     = ~/.config/fontconfig/fonts.conf 

MENU

Code for that menu [Sorry it's so rough]

SHUFFLE WALLPAPERS

A thread from another website, worked like a charm https://www.ubuntuopenbox.com/tips/Nitr … Slideshow/

use command: crontab -e
paste and save this code into the file that opens.
['20' is time, 20 minutes.]

*/20 * * * * (export DISPLAY=:0.0 && /bin/date && /usr/bin/nitrogen --set-zoom-fill --random /wallpapers/folder/ --save) > /tmp/myNitrogen.log 2>&1

sudo service cron restart

Re: Quick Info Cheat Sheet and MENU and SHUFFLE WALLPAPERS

Random walls = cool^. Note to my future self: Add something along

--set-color=#456

to nitrogen cli to cover transparent pngs as well.

I turned the idea into alias btw

alias nitrand='nitrogen --set-zoom-fill --set-color=#456 --random "$HOME/wallpapers"'
