The same set of desktop wallpaper images should be available in GNOME and KDE.
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.
Putting in NEEDINFO for decision on Bug 61413.
Changing "desktop-integration" whiteboard to "desktop-milan", sorry for the spam...
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.
It's already fixed in 3.0.2-6 or newer
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.
it's fixed in the current RHEL3 release and FC2
