Description Ben Levenson 2002-07-05 22:03:33 EDT
Description of Problem:
* open gnome-background-properties.
* change background to /usr/share/backgrounds/wallpapers/fish.png.
* config app will hang.
* clicking on the Close Window "X" in the top right multiple times will 
  eventually present you with the opportunity to kill the application.
* subsequent launchings of the config app will also hang leaving you with
  gconf-editor as the only way to correct the situation.

We don't seem to have any of those backgrounds anymore, what package were they in?
Comment 2 Havoc Pennington 2002-08-15 16:59:09 EDT
Ah, found fish.png. works for me now.
