Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 163121
Nautilus cannot change desktop background after a period of time.
Last modified: 2013-03-05 22:43:53 EST
Description of problem:
When I first log in I can run gnome-background-properties and change the
background. Then after a period of time (hours) if I open
gnome-background-properties and select a new background, nautilus does not
display the new image immedietly. I have to log out and log back in, or `killall
-HUP nautilus` to get the new background to appear. Once nautilus is restarted,
it can once again change backgrounds on demand, at least for a while. Eventually
it once again forgets how to change images, and it requires a restart.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always, once I have waited long enough.
Steps to Reproduce:
2. Do something for a while.
3. Change the background using gnome-background-properties
The background does not change.
The background should change to the selected image.
My desktop has been up for 10 days and I cannot duplicate this.
I'm having the same issue (FC6). Perhaps related to suspend?
