Hallo everyone, I've got a really particular and weird problem here..I
hope there are people able of helping me because this is strange.
I'm on Ubuntu Hardy right now. When I used Gutsy, after installing
Enlightenment E17, logging into the session gave me the gnome-wallpaper
in background. I mean, after the E17 wallpaper loaded the gnome
wallpaper was not there anymore.. but right after logging with GDM, I
could see the gnome wallpaper in background.
I'm not sure if that's because I used gnome-settings-daemon or not.. but I used it by the way, for icons, themes, etc.
Well, since the gnome wallpaper was somehow in background, I was able
to use it for fake transparencies of the terminal, fbpanel, etc. I just
had to set a gnome wallpaper equal to a screenshot of the same E17
wallpaper... I loved that feature.
Now in Hardy I notice that if I run Ubuntu in a gnome session it of
course loads the wallpaper, if I do it in an E17 session, even running
gnome-settings-daemon the gnome wallpaper is not there behind
everything... so I do not have anymore my beloved fake transparency in
gnome-terminal... now, why does it happens and how can I fix it, having
the gnome-wallpaper be loaded when I log into E17?
I really hope someone out there is wise enough to be able and help me...
Update: I found that after launching nautilus in E17, the gnome wallpaper is setted in background.
Nautilus opens a fake desktop window when you opn it (to avoid this you
should launch it with nautilus --no-desktop) and a normal browser
window. When it crates the fake desktop window, it also settes the
gnome wallpaper in background, so, if I killall nautilus, he gnome
background remains there in background and the gnome-terminal displays
why does this happen? What's different from the previous Ubuntu
version? Why is nautilus the one who handles this? And why in the
previous version it was gnome-settings-daemon who took care of this?
Does anyone know how can I find another way, maybe a command / script
to be able to handle this background property of gnome without having
to run nautilus at all?
