Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 71272
Nautulus overwrites background image
Last modified: 2015-01-07 18:59:05 EST
I selected a background image by pressing right mouse button on root window
and select Change Desktop Background. This image appears when I login, but is
overwritten by the Nautilus background (a blue solid by default).
What is going wrong here?
Forgot to say that the preview in the window where you can set it up (named
"Background") is OK.
IMO it is really Nautilus that overwrites the setting, even when "Use GNOME to
draw background" is enabled. I have the option "Use Nautilus to draw the
desktop" enabled because I want the icons om my screen.
What window manager are you using?
I use sawfish from the RH 7.3 distro.
BTW. in ~/.gnome/Background, I don't see a way for GNOME to determine if it
should use a background picture or a (solid) fill.

Any clues about a solution?
This bug was reported ages ago and nothing was done to it.
So it is of no use to leave it open.
