Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1003633
grey BG instead of selected BG
Last modified: 2015-02-18 06:26:09 EST
Description of problem:
With the file manager (nautilus) handling the desktop on (org.gnome.desktop.background.show-desktop-icons is enabled) and this theme is selected for the Gtk+ theme, then the background is grey. If the file manager is NOT handling the desktop, then the selected background is correctly displayed.
Note: This is NOT the only theme with this problem. So far as I cn tell, only the Adwaita, Zukitwo, and Zukiwi gtk3 themes do not have the problem.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 19, gnome 3
Steps to Reproduce:
correct background displayed only if file manager not handling the desktop.
correct background displayed
I never tried the "file manager handling the desktop" feature until this bug, so I never knew it was broken.
Thanks for the report, I'll try to fix this in the next update Real Soon Now (TM). :)
The grey background problem likely involves this:
Something changed in how this is handled between Fedora 18 and Fedora 19.
Apparently the rules changed. The Adwaita theme was updated some time ago so it does not have the problem:
The themes probably needed to be updated because there was some change on the
gtk+ side. What makes me believe so are these changes which were made to
Adwaita (months before nautilus desktop changed):
I would have thought that this interface change would have gotten more publicity.
This message is a notice that Fedora 19 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 19. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now this bug will
be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '19'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 19 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 19 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-01-06. Fedora 19 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
