View Doppler radar-in-motion on the desktop
Authored by: chleuasme on Jun 12, '08 09:45:15AM
- Only looked at your shell script; Read some man pages! ;-)
#!/bin/sh

mapsdir=~/Library/WeatherMaps
mkdir -p "$mapsdir"

curl -s -o "$mapsdir"/latest#1.jpg http://image.weather.com/looper/archive/us_ind_closeradar_large_usen/[1-5]L.jpg
- And this doesn't work for me (10.5.3):
defaults write com.apple.desktop ChangeTime 1
killall Dock
I have to edit the ChangeTime value in the sub-items of the Background key of the plist file to make it work.

Thanks. I didn't know curl could be used that way.

Is there a way to use defaults to change all the ChangeTime properties in com.apple.desktop?
