There is missing support for Gnome's dark mode. This change adds some level support for it.

$ diff wallch-4.15/src/wallpapermanager.cpp wallch-4.15-mod/src/wallpapermanager.cpp 
<         currentImage=Global::gsettingsGet("org.gnome.desktop.background", "picture-uri");
>         const QString mode=Global::gsettingsGet("org.gnome.desktop.interface", "color-scheme");
>         currentImage=Global::gsettingsGet("org.gnome.desktop.background",
>                                           (mode=="prefer-dark") ? "picture-uri-dark" : "picture-uri");
>         Global::gsettingsSet("org.gnome.desktop.background", "picture-uri-dark", "file://"+image);

The same patch is also posted to (which seems to be a bit updated version of 4.15) as issue #3

---- Installing the needed packages ---- ./install: line 49: apt-get: command not found ERROR: installing build dependencies failed Please report this at Somebody will ACTUALLY have a look :) ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package(). Aborting... ==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build . I suppose that the package is not currently being maintained. If so, please remove it from the AUR, otherwise, please update it. Thank you

Hei, I will adopt this package for now.

I don't have much use for this anymore, so I'm disowning this package. If anyone wants to take it over, feel free.
