Wallpaper as a slideshow

Thanks Zab ... that worked for me as I'm running Cinnamon DE and didn't know how to make a slideshow of my wallpapers ..... DeanG posted in that thread that going into Backgrounds in your System Settings you are able to do just that .......

Doing a search on the web for Ways to Customize Cinnamon Desktop I found this .....

Backslide GNOME extension works a treat in Zorin 16.3 Pro, haven't tested it in Core though.

Having just read this thread has me concerned for the future as more DE's are dropping .deb for flatpak and snap, that applies to KDE (Plasma), Gnome and xfce when they adopt Wayland. I reported elsewhere recently that I could not find synaptic in Discover on KDE Neon but managed to install it via terminal.

How are distros to contend with such issues if they switch to being Wayland only?
Wayland is not ready for primetime.
It seems like they are trying to apply force to get their own way and are likely to hoist themselves up by their own petard in the process. After-which, the excuses will follow.

I agree entirely but its the Dev's know best ignore everyone else syndrome. More disconcerting about issues for accessibility, especially the screenreader. I also suspect that when the next iteration of Gnome comes out will prevent Gnome extensions from working.

Given that Gnome Devs have repeatedly voiced a disregard for extensions, this would be unsurprising. I think that the Gnome Devs are likely to "permit" extensions for a bit longer to ensure user compliance, then slowly begin phasing them out.
