Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1473714
/usr/share/backgrounds/default.png symlink gone missing
Last modified: 2018-03-12 18:36:44 EDT
Description of problem:
In the file /usr/share/sddm/themes/02-fedora/theme.conf
from the sddm package (sddm-0.14.0-10.fc26.x86_64)
The background value is set to :
There is no file default.png in that location.
This should be :
$ rpm -qR sddm | grep back
$ rpm -q -f /usr/share/backgrounds/default.png
Can you post the output from
rpm -ql desktop-backgrounds-compat
If it doesn't include /usr/share/backgrounds/default.png, it probably should be fixed so to break compatibility
It seems that for some reason the symbolic link '/usr/share/backgrounds/default.png' to ./f26/default/standard/f26.png has gone missing from my 5 desktop systems.
reinstalling the rpm or recreating the link manually does solve the problem.
However I have no clue as to why it has disappeared on my systems.
Thank you for your time.
Triaging to desktop-backgrounds, adjusting summary
