Description James Laska 2004-08-30 08:55:50 EDT
# TREE rawhide-20040830
# RPMS control-center-2.7.1-1

Steps to reproduce:
 1) right click on desktop and select "Change Desktop Background"
 2) select "Add Wallpaper"
 3) navigate to png or jpg and select that image

Actual Results:
 - The selected image does not show up in the above file display

Expected Results:
 - The selected image should appear in the background file display and
should be selected as the current background.

I should note that I can open up the image in epiphany and right click
"Set as background" and that works correctly.  I believe this bug is
related to bug#131113.  I can remove an image that is already in my
background list, and re-add it.  Shown below are the results of `file`
on the image that I removed/then added again (existing.jpg), and one
of many new images that won't add to the list (new.jpg).

(~/Desktop/Documents/Images)> file existing.jpg
existing.jpg: JPEG image data, EXIF standard 2.2

(~/Desktop/Documents/Images)> file new.jpg
new.jpg: JPEG image data, EXIF standard 2.2

I am attaching `strace` output from an attempt to add a background to
my list.

For a full strace (1.4M) of the above scenario (attempting to add a
new image "Big Sur Sunset.jpg") see ...

Closed not a bug ... adding the gamin package seems to have resolved
the issue.
