Description Thomas Woerner 2007-08-27 15:55:57 UTC
Description of problem:
There is no working way to disable background for gnome-settings-daemon.
Everythime gnome-settings-daemon is started, the background/root will be drawn.
Setting /desktop/gnome/background/draw_background to false has no effect. If
/desktop/gnome/background/picture_filename is set, this picture will be drawn;
if it is not set, then a gradient or a solid color will be painted in the root
window.
gnome-settings-daemon is needed for gtk applications to use the proper font
rendering even if gnome is not used at all.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
control-center-2.19.90-4.fc8

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start without a desktop or with a window manager only
2. Start gnome-settings-daemon
3. Watch at the root window
  
Actual results:
Background is drawn - always.

Expected results:
No drawing in the root window.

Additional info:
This is also a problem in F-7.

Comment 1 Ray Strode [halfline] 2007-08-27 15:58:19 UTC
seems nothing looks at the key, and the schema for the key is in libgnome which
is sort of funky

Comment 2 Thomas Woerner 2007-11-12 12:33:59 UTC
This is still a problem for F-8.
