There is no directory called wallpaper .. and using "Pictures" is fine.

But ..

Remember Linux file/directory names ARE case sensitive, so the correct line in the script would be:-

DIR=/home/<your_username>/Pictures/

NOT

DIR=/home/<your_username>/pictures/

personally I'd create a directory inside "Pictures" called "Wallpapers" .. then make that line read:-

DIR=/home/<your_username>/Pictures/Wallpapers/

and be sure to only put .jpg wallpapers in there.

=======================

Also whilst testing,, I'd change the line that reads:-

sleep 10m

to

sleep 10

which will change the wallpaper every ten seconds (as opposed to ten minutes) .. it will make it easier to check if it works .. you can always change it back once you know it works.

=========================

if it still doesn't work, pastebin the contents of your script, and post a link to your pastebin.
