Description Havoc Pennington 2002-03-13 23:39:33 UTC
The same set of desktop wallpaper images should be available in GNOME and KDE.

Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2002-03-20 15:49:58 UTC
Agreed. The best way to do this would be making /usr/share/pixmaps/backgrounds a symlink 
to /usr/share/wallpapers or vice versa, to allow 3rd party applications (written on other 
or older distributions) to find them no matter where they look. 
This currently can't be done because rpm doesn't support replacing a directory with a 
symlink, bug #61413.

Comment 2 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2002-03-25 13:30:55 UTC
Putting in NEEDINFO for decision on Bug 61413.

Comment 3 Havoc Pennington 2002-05-14 16:34:35 UTC
Changing "desktop-integration" whiteboard to "desktop-milan", sorry for the spam...

Comment 4 Havoc Pennington 2002-07-08 16:10:39 UTC
The back compat isn't important enough to wait on the rpm symlink thing. That
isn't going too happen for this release. So we should just go ahead and 
retarget to the desktop-backgrounds package.

Comment 5 Ngo Than 2002-08-06 14:51:39 UTC
It's already fixed in 3.0.2-6 or newer

Comment 6 Jay Turner 2002-09-04 00:24:08 UTC
OK, not sure that I understand the resolution to this bug.  With
kdebase-3.0.3-10, when I choose the background configuration utility, a bunch of
KDE wallpapers are presented from the /usr/share/wallpapers/ directory, while
the desktop-backgrounds packages are installing to /usr/share/backgrounds.

Comment 7 Than Ngo 2004-10-07 20:09:43 UTC
it's fixed in the current RHEL3 release and FC2
