How to update your Linux Wallpaper daily to Bing Image of the Day (Ubuntu/Mint)

This is what I visit Bing for, Yes the Wallpapers! In Windows it is pretty easy to update it daily with Bing Image of the Day automatically, You just have to install the Bing Desktop Application.

But what about Linux Users? Yes a week before I completely migrated to Linux Mint from Windows 10, I am still learning about it, so this is the reason for this plain Thumbnail! Still Struggling with GIMP.

I did this with a simple BingWallpaper Script by WhizzzKids and also the Wallpapers which are downloaded are saved in your System.

Run the following commands in Terminal to get it working:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:whizzzkid/bingwallpaper
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install bingwallpaper

Your Wallpaper will be updated in next reboot. This programs runs on startup, I would recommend you to remove it from startup programs.
Disable Bing Wallpaper
Now whenever you want to change your Wallpaper, just open terminal and enter bingwallpaper and the latest Image will be downloaded and set as your Wallpaper.
