Description Rob Wills 2010-06-14 17:29:17 UTC
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):

How reproducible:
Very reproducible.

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
Actual results:
Any changes that you made are ignored, and the default F13 wallpaper with the style "scale" is used.

Expected results:
That your wallpaper settings would remain in effect.

Additional info:
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.

Comment 1 Mamoru TASAKA 2010-06-14 18:18:20 UTC
Then why do you install wallpapoz to set wallpaper while 
you want to set wallpaper using nautilus (perhaps)?
The behavior you described is expected.

Comment 2 Mamoru TASAKA 2010-06-14 18:35:15 UTC
Ah, actually seems "gnome-appearance-properties", however anyway
this behavior is expected.

Comment 3 Rob Wills 2010-06-14 21:45:27 UTC
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.

Comment 4 Mamoru TASAKA 2010-06-15 03:59:47 UTC
Okay, anyway thanks.
