Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 471624
Picture screensaver does not use all pictures
Last modified: 2014-06-02 09:03:04 EDT
Description of problem:
"Picture folder" screensaver does not use all images in the $HOME/Pictures directory.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add a number of images to the $HOME/Pictures folder
2. Enable the screensaver
3. Watch a subset of those photos appear in the screensaver
Not all of the images are displayed.
If some of the images are invalid, the program should announce or log the fact that some photos were skipped, and for what reason.
Using the same set of images, a different subset of those images appeared on different machines.
I think we just need a g_random_set_seed (time (NULL)) call added to srvers/gste-slideshow.c or so.
