Many of us download images from internet and then set it as wallpaper. In this short hack , I will let you know, how you can make any internet image as desktop background without downloading it in your local machine.
In ubuntu you need to run this command:
sudo apt-get install feh feh --bg-scale /path/to/your/background/image.jpg
change path to internet image:
feh --bg-scale https://bit.ly/3EnPMkc

you can make feh to remember your choice next boot:
Once you've picked a wallpaper, feh stores the name in a file called .fehbg. That means you can tell it to restore the wallpaper on the next boot by checking to see what's inside that file. Add this line to your ~/.xinitrc file.
eval `cat $HOME/.fehbg` &
Other things you can do:
(1) My readers may recall my post about the lorapora-sum of images, in which images are generated on each refresh ( check my previous posts). You can try this on your server by allowing feh to reload every 2 hours. As a simple home-made solution.
(2) If you are a "Administrator," you can update the season greeting as the desktop wallpaper on all computers connected to your network.
(3) New notices are delivered to employees' desktops on a daily basis. They are not required to open mail:)
