Description Gene Czarcinski 2013-09-02 10:30:08 EDT
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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual results:
correct background displayed only if file manager not handling the desktop.

Expected results:
correct background displayed

Comment 1 Gene Czarcinski 2013-09-05 10:46:54 EDT
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.
