I don't know, people's comps might be slow (it takes some time to re-size the 
picture once an hour (a few secs on my machine, but it can be longer on 
slower ones)), people may not want to use Fedora's background, etc...

However, we can make a package of the script and the pictures but not activate 
them by default.

Here are the steps:
1. Create a new folder and call it Infinity.
2. Download all the pictures in to that folder (they 
should be 24 png files).
3. Download the script from and 
put it in the same folder.
4. If you want to install it for yourself only then copy the folder you 
created to ~/.kde/share/wallpapers (if it doesn't exist, create it), if you 
want to install it for all the users, then copy it to /usr/share/wallpapers 
instead, but you have to be the root.
5. To change your background, right click on your desktop and click Configure 
Desktop, click on No Picture, then click on Advanced Options.
6. In the window that opens, click on add.
7. In the name field, enter Infinity, in the command field enter 
~/.kde/share/wallpapers/Infinity/infinity %x %y %f , 
or /user/share/wallpapers/Infinity/infinity %x %y %f , depending on where you 
installed it.
8. Put the same line in Preview cmd, and put 
or /user/share/wallpapers/Infinity/infinity in Executable, and set the 
Refresh time to 60 min.
9. Click on OK, OK, then OK.
