If you're trying to get rotating wallpaper, you might try installing and using wallpapoz, which is available in the fedora repo. I was quite happy with it for several years until I switched to Xfce, which provides it without extra software.

yes, I installed it. But that way I have to donwload thousands of wallpapers in my resolution. Variety does that automatically, with tons of other options. Can't seem to compile in in f25 tho

I don't feel the need for that many wallpapers; a few dozen is ample, but I get to decide which ones I use instead of trusting somebody else's taste. Sorry you didn't like it.

this is the package:

I am unable to compile from source. This is what I've done:

  1. Downloaded the tar.gz
  2. Extracted
  3. Ran python install
  4. Installed with errors, does not run.

(as instructed on: )

Basically, I am looking for a complete way to compile from source listed on the website, to install it on Fedora 25. Any help would do. Thank you.

Sergio's package as mentioned on your link works for me, failing that I give details of running from source here:
