Last commit: [6cdc9b20] bing-wallpaper@starcross.dev: Fix image refresh across different timezones/markets (#2975)

Download and apply Today's Bing Wallpaper to your desktop

Bing Desktop Wallpaper for Cinnamon

A Cinnamon applet to apply the daily Bing Wallpaper to your Cinnamon desktop

Based on the Gnome Shell extension

The Bing Image of the Day will be downloaded to the user's Pictures folder, and applied as the Desktop Background

The resolution used is 1920x1024. This is the highest available resolution to my knowledge, except 1920x1200, which contains the Bing logo and is less commonly used anyway.

Wallpaper does not changed after first installation. Firstly, it changed my default wallpaper to nice flying frog. But, when wallpaper was changed on the phone, I have checked picture on the desktop - in icon written "Clouds above Tenerife", but frog still flying.

I'm sorry for my first post. Now it works perfectly, but I still don't know why first installation was unsuccesful.

Current wallpaper description is lost when Cinnamon is restarted. Could it be stored somewhere?

Thanks for this update, works well on mint 19.3. Could it have an option to remove the taskbar icon in the future ?
