    I don’t mean to sound completely stupid, but I have installed as directed and “ran” it from terminal, but I do not have an icon/launcher. How do I create a launcher for this? Or is it on automatically when I start my computer? How do I change settings?
    thank you very much.

    • Geekster says:

      you have an indicator, near the clock 🙂

      • Geekster says:

        what desktop environment are you using?

        • Leanne says:

          gnome flashback metacity

          I removed it and reinstalled and have what the terminal said on reinstall. One part was an error about the dconf…

          • Leanne says:

            I had to add the indicator applet in order to see the icon, but now I have icons I do not need (Caffeine, network connections, character map/keyboard layout, and sound settings) Is there a way to get rid of those and still keep the icon for the wallpaper-manager?

    No, actually I don’t. if I knew how to post a picture on here, i would show you. That’s why I’m confused (I saw it in the above picture).
