Hi.

The original [link] is 1080×607 webp format.

However, by clicking on the first post link, you get a 3840x2160 png, which you can save via right-click, save as...

The rest of the resolutions are generated automatically through this page which is under reconstruction. :unknown:

I suppose that having the original one can do the same from some other similar page.

If you right-click on an image, you can set that image as Wallpaper

Question for the developers:
What commands are behind it?

Right-click
--------------------------
create folder = mkdir
rename = mv
....
set as Wallpaper = ???

It depends on which Desktop is used.
In XFCE the right-click 'set as wallpaper' option in thunar is done by the thunar-wallpaper-plugin.so.

To do it by hand (in cli) use the xfconf tool.
First find out which settings are changed if you change the wallpaper:

Code: Select all

xfconf-query -c xfce4-desktop -m
this will monitor which value is changed if we change the wallpaper via GUI.

with that info we can change the wallpaper as we want - Example:

Code: Select all

xfconf-query -c xfce4-desktop -p /backdrop/screen0/monitor0/workspace0/last-image -s /path/to/whatever.jpg
Done/tested with xfce 4.12 -- Hopefully it hasn't changed in newer XFCE versions.

Hi Donald,
Didn't work for me:

Code: Select all

guest@porteux:~/Pictures$ xfconf-query -c xfce4-desktop -p /backdrop/screen0/monitor0/workspace0/last-image -s /home/guest/Pictures/hintergrund.png
Property "/backdrop/screen0/monitor0/workspace0/last-image" does not exist on channel "xfce4-desktop". If a new property should be created, use the --create option.
guest@porteux:~/Pictures$ xfconf-query --create -c xfce4-desktop -p /backdrop/screen0/monitor0/workspace0/last-image -s /home/guest/Pictures/hintergrund.png
When creating a new property, the value type must be specified.
guest@porteux:~/Pictures$ xfconf-query --create string -c xfce4-desktop -p /backdrop/screen0/monitor0/workspace0/last-image -s /home/guest/Pictures/hintergrund.png
When creating a new property, the value type must be specified.
guest@porteux:~/Pictures$ xfconf-query --create -string -c xfce4-desktop -p /backdrop/screen0/monitor0/workspace0/last-image -s /home/guest/Pictures/hintergrund.png
Option parsing failed: Error parsing option -t.
I'm using Xfce 4.16

Now I tried this command.
Nothing happens!

Code: Select all

guest@porteux:~$ xfconf-query -c xfce4-desktop -p /backdrop/screen0/monitor0/workspace0/last-image --create --type string -s /home/guest/Bilder/hintergrund.png

It does work if you follow the instructions given above.
-- tested with xfce 4.16 in a VM --

again:
open terminal and run xfconf-query -c xfce4-desktop -m
let the terminal stay open.
change the wallpaper the usual way via the xfce desktop settings GUI.
the terminal will show you what string has changed.
(most likely the one which ends with 'last-image')
That string, shown in the terminal, is what you need.

You have to use your string
xfconf-query -c xfce4-desktop -p /your/string -s /path/to/image

oh,btw I use porteus not porteux

Hi Donald
Now I understand the principle of monitoring: xfconf-query -c xfce4-desktop -m
Thank you.
This command works now:
xfconf-query -c xfce4-desktop -p /backdrop/screen0/monitoreDP/workspace0/last-image -s /path/to/image

I tried looking at https://resi.ze-robot.com/ but all it says is
"Hello. I am Resizer, Ze Robot.
Sorry, Ze Robot is under reconstruction.
Available functions are limited. "
Functions limited? Such understatement. :wall: Any image I click is not available.
Not Found (#404)
Source not found
The above error occurred while the Web server was processing your request.
Does the site not store finished images? Are they all generated on the fly?
Cheers!
