    I was wondering if it's possible to change the desktop background interval time value via terminal or something, to change the desktop rotation changing picture to custom time-intervals (from 5secs to every-day in increments by default). Also wanting to know how to do it.
    Thanks in advance

    It's funny - no feedback in 8 years!. and here I was wanting to ask the same thing in reverse... i.e. Would anybody know how one can get a more granular "Change Desktop Background" interval, much like in Linux? Presently, there is 5 seconds, then 1 minute! Is there a script for modifying the interval to something like 10, 15 or 30 seconds? I have a lot of pictures I'd want to use for this. I hope someone can help, or at least show where the control is, and if one can write a script for it. Thanks.

    edit 1. found answers by asking the right question; off to check them now.
