Description Matthias Clasen 2004-09-23 13:00:04 EDT
I just tried to change the background on the fresh rawhide install,
and although the desktop-backgrounds-* packages are installed, 
gnome-background-properties doesn't offer any backgrounds.

I think we should

Ok, so adding all the images in the desktop-background-* packages

remove the rest from the xml files I'm attaching shortly.

Additionally, we should add a preview to the file chooser, and make

I've asked Diana to come up with a short list of images to show initially.

I have a patch ready to add a simple preview to the file chooser.

Added the preview to the file chooser now, in control-center-2.8.0-5
Keeping this bug open to add the initial list of backgrounds.
