Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 867053
Background image change only applied after re-login
Last modified: 2012-10-30 05:09:12 EDT
Description of problem:
I am trying to change the desktop background on a Fedora 18 setup with the 'Mate desktop' package group installed.
The change only gets applied after re-login.
I am not sure if this is handled by caja but I got mate-file-manager-1.4.0-7.fc18.x86_64 installed.
The only error log I found was in .xsession-errors:
(mate-appearance-properties:12632): capplet-common-WARNING **: Couldn't load window manager settings module `/usr/lib64/window-manager-settings/libmarco.so' (/usr/lib64/window-manager-settings/libmarco.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory)
maybe that's related.
could be, that file (libmarco.so) is from mate-control-center. I'll look into it
Yeah, should be fixed in

Have not seen the libmarco.so bug again, but wallpaper changes are still not applied directy.
I have verified it on two setups, installed with Beta TC4 DVD and Netinstall.
It seems that caja is started with the --no-desktop option. Perhaps that's the reason why desktop background image changes are not applied immediately.

Please file this separate issue against mate-file-manager as caja draws the desktop.
