Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 603855
Wallpapoz prevents changes to your desktop wallpaper from remaining in effect after user logs out or restarts their computer.
Last modified: 2010-06-14 23:59:47 EDT
Description of problem:
With the wallpapoz service\daemon running, any changes that you make to your dekstop wallpaper through the gnome desktop appearances manager will be reverted to the F13 default, including any style changes, upon logging out or rebooting your computer.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Right click anywhere on your desktop and choose "change desktop background"
2. Make any changes to your wallpaper
3. Log out or reboot your computer
Any changes that you made are ignored, and the default F13 wallpaper with the style "scale" is used.
That your wallpaper settings would remain in effect.
After getting some help from Fedoraforum.org, I solved the issue by disabling the wallpapoz auto-start application through system\preferences\personal\start-up applications. The wallpapoz gui tool under applications\accessories also lets you disable the deamon from running, which also seemed to solve the problem.
Then why do you install wallpapoz to set wallpaper while
you want to set wallpaper using nautilus (perhaps)?
The behavior you described is expected.
Ah, actually seems "gnome-appearance-properties", however anyway
this behavior is expected.
Ah, okay. I really never fooled around with wallpapoz before so I'm not that familiar with it. You can close this bug report then if you'd like.
Okay, anyway thanks.
