Instal SyncWall on Ubuntu 13.04, 12.10, 12.04, Linux Mint

In this tutorial I’ll show you how to easily install SyncWall wallpaper changer on Ubuntu and Linux Mint via PPA repository.

SyncWall is quite a basic wallpaper changer for Ubuntu Linux. It has the ability to synchronize wallpaper change between several workstations with a basic (and unsecured) client/server protocol. Each workstation must share the same pool of files, there is no FTP or Internet download.

Features:

  • Synchronization change between computers
  • Simple multi monitor support
  • Ability to add some special effects (blur,gray,edges, …) to wallpaper before display

To install SyncWall, press Ctrl+Alt+T to open terminal, then follow the below steps:

1.) Run command to add the ppa repository:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8

2.) If you’ve already install Synaptic Package Manger, open it and click Reload button. Search for and install syncwall.

If not, run this command instead:

sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install syncwall

Enjoy!
