No working way to disable background for gnome-settings-daemon
Last modified: 2008-03-14 11:11:59 EDT
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
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):
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
Background is drawn - always.
No drawing in the root window.
This is also a problem in F-7.
seems nothing looks at the key, and the schema for the key is in libgnome which
is sort of funky
This is still a problem for F-8.
