See The Easiest Way To Set Bing’s Image of the Day As Your Linux Wallpaper


This is an installable python script called ‘Bing Wallpaper for Linux‘ that adds itself to your Startup apps and runs on each reboot. It will store all the downloaded wallpapers in ~/Pictures/Bing .

Unless you’re crazy about Bing you’re probably not going to want your desktop to have a 40% opacity Bing logo on it.


Installing This ‘Bing Wallpaper’ App

Thanks to the Whizzzkid, the Toronto-based developer who made this app along with a PPA for it. A PPA which supports Ubuntu 14.04 LTS through 16.10 and allows you to add it to your software sources via the following commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:whizzzkid/bingwallpaper
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install bingwallpaper

If you are not sure you want to add a whole PPA to your system then just download an installer for Ubuntu 16.04 LTS from here.

Once your download is complete, you can go ahead to install the app with your preferred installation method (e.g., viaUbuntu Software, Gdebi, intravenous drip, dpkg, etc).
