I will fix this for xfce.

Comment 4 Mukundan Ragavan 2022-10-09 20:09:08 UTC
Looks like this is fixed by desktop-backgrounds 37...4 build.

I went ahead and updated xfdesktop (quite late)


I am not going to submit this build for F37 update since it is no longer needed.

Can this bug be closed?

Comment 5 Adam Williamson 2022-10-10 06:02:19 UTC
There is still an active update for F37:


so I guess you could do a build and we could edit it into that update. It seems like Luya added back the png files alongside the webp ones, so xfce works again, so it might not be strictly necessary, though.

Comment 6 Mamoru TASAKA 2022-11-13 01:21:18 UTC
I believe for at least for F-37 we no longer have to modify XFCE side.

Comment 7 Adam Williamson 2022-11-16 19:48:35 UTC
seems luya did push https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/updates/FEDORA-2022-a5622b766b stable, but I think it contains both webp and png now, so it's probably still ok.
