I wrote a script that looks like this:
import subprocess import time while True: for i in range(3): subprocess.call(["dconf", "write", "/org/gnome/desktop/background/picture-uri", "'file://[my directory]"+str(i)+".png'"]) time.sleep(.1)
Where 0.png, 1.png, and 2.png are pure red, blue, and green images.
Now my goal is to make my desktop background flash like crazy. However, when I run it, Ubuntu insists on slowly fading from one color to another at much longer than 0.1 second speed.
How can I change, or eliminate, the transition speed?
