I'm the author of Kompose, a fullscreen taskmanager for KDE, quite similar
to Apple's Expose but without the fancy zooming effects.
Kompose also works quite well on the Gnome desktop, there is however one
The routine I use to retrieve the current desktop background (a shared pixmap
in KDE) does not work for Gnome.
Is there a way to do the same in gnome? And if yes: Is there also a way to get
notified when the desktop background changes?
I hope to fix this long-standing bug as I often get requests from gnome users
wanting to use Kompose as it seems to be the most comfortable (in UI terms)
of all fullscreen takswitchers. Would be great to make them happy, too.
Can anyone at least point me to the right direction?
Ah yeah, and please CC me as I'm not subscribed to the list.
