I am new to Garuda Linux, i just installed it.
I have the problem that my wallpapers are switching like in a Slideshow and i dont know how to disable it.

By now i went 5 Times trough all the settings in "System Settings" and found nothing.
When i go to "Customize Desktop and wallpaper" and select a wallpaper and apply, the wallpaper appears but gets switched after 2 - 5min.

(And yes the Slideshow checkmark is deselected!)
The settings i configure there dosent seem to make any diffrence, it gets switched anyway.

i even moved all wallpapers out of the wallpaper folder (/usr/share/wallpapers) and it is still putting crappy wallpapers in my face.

My thougth on this is that maybe another App is switching The Wallpapers

Variety is a common one, check if you have that installed by accident
