How to use wallch

First Start the wallch and load some images as it is empty by default. You can also set the time interval after which the wallpaper will change.

In My case, I have created a folder with the name “Wallpaper” in my home directory and save my favorite pictures in that folder and set one hour time interval for wallpaper rotation.

Go To “Applications —-> Accessories —> Wallch”.
