NAME
xscreensaver-getimage-file - put a randomly-selected image on the root window SYNOPSIS
xscreensaver-getimage-file [-display host:display.screen] [--verbose] [--name] directory DESCRIPTION
The xscreensaver-getimage-file program is a helper program for the xscreensaver hacks that manipulate images. Specifically, it is invoked by xscreensaver-getimage(1) as needed. This is not a user-level command. This program selects a random image from disk, and loads it on the root window. It does this by figuring out which image-loading programs are installed on the system, and invoking the first one it finds. OPTIONS
xscreensaver-getimage-file accepts the following options: --verbose Print diagnostics. --name Don't load an image: instead just print the file name to stdout. directory The directory to search. The directory will be searched recursively, and all files in it are assumed to be images. SEE ALSO
