Description Sebastian Vahl 2007-05-08 08:05:18 EDT
Description of problem: Since the update to 0.5.3 (AFAIR) wp_tray is also using
/usr/share/backgrounds/images. I don't have this directory enabled in the settings.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. wait some time or manually use "Forward" to change the wallpaper
Actual results: 
Some wallpapers are used from /usr/share/backgrounds/images

Expected results:
Since this directory is not configured in settings no wallpapers from there
should be used.

Additional info:  cat ~/.gconf/apps/wp_tray/%gconf.xml

Right, this is actually not a bug. It seems to be a feature added to 0.5.3.
Essentially when it sets a random background, it will always add the wallpapers
list from the standard Gnome Desktop Background tool (from the file

Though i admit this is a pretty annoying feature. I'll provide a patch to make
this optional from the Preferences.

Fixed, added a patch to make the 0.5.3 "feature" optional in the Preferences
dialog. SRPM is available here :

Please let me know if it fixes your problem.

It seems to work. I've set "Rotate Interval" to 1 minute and waited an hour.
I've also used "Forward" several times. No wallpaper from /usr/share/backgrounds
were used.
