Crebs wallpaper slideshow generator gets a PPA, new features

CreBs – the curiously named* but totally awesome slideshow wallpaper generator for Ubuntu – has gotten itself a PPA, making installation of this must-have app a breeze.

Crebs has also undergone a few fixes and tweaks since we last waxed lyrical about it, improving various UI elements, adding some icons to buttons & showing some desktop sexy via notify-osd upon successful creation of a new background set.
