       drapes  -  a  desktop  wallpaper  management  application for the GNOME


       This manual page documents briefly the drapes command.

       drapes completes (or replaces) the built-in  GNOME  desktop  wallpapers
       selection  tool.   It  can  be configured as a tray application or as a
       panel applet.  The bigest selling point of drapes is ability to  rotate
       wallapers  on  a  timely basis.  It strives to be as simple as possible
       and fits in the rest of the GNOME 2 desktop.


       drapes follow the usual GNU command  line  syntax,  with  long  options
       starting  with  two  dashes  (‘-’).   A  summary of options is included

       -h, --help
              Show summary of options.

       -v, --version
              Show version of program.


       drapes has several preference settings  stored  in  GConf.  Changes  to
       Settings  are  applied  instantly  to  any  running  Drapes instance. A
       summary of the GConf settings and thir purpose are described below.
