Please form the synopsis so that it answers the question “What is

That is, it should be a noun phrase such that one can take the
<package-synopsis> and plug it into a sentence of the form
“<package-name> is a <package-synopsis>”.

Somewhat less important, and more a matter of taste: I find it
off-putting for a package synopsis to talk about “you”.

Suggested improvement:

    magical elf that changes desktop wallpaper automatically

where “magical elf” is, of course, replaced with whatever kind of thing
this is.
