BunsenLabs Hates Wallpaper.

I have noticed a very odd little bug in the wallpaper changer in BL. When you add a folder from preferences it will not work again after rebooting the pc. You have to go in and remove the folder and then add it again! This is the only solution I have found.
*Note: I have mostly been trying to use a dropbox folder and that might have something to do with it.
(slightly off topic: I have noticed that sometimes BL forgets my wallpaper and reverts back to a grey screen)
Hope this is useful info....

Re: BunsenLabs Hates Wallpaper.

@ Damo

Is Bunsen using the default Debian user folders with capital letters? I thought this was a bug or something, because it doesn't match the .gtk-bookmarks. Only bin and backup are in the side-pane in thunar, as the other directories doesn't exist in Bunsen. Not in the install I did anyway.... There is a mismatch here:

file:///home/tweak/backup backup
file:///home/tweak/bin bin
file:///home/tweak/documents documents
file:///home/tweak/downloads downloads
file:///home/tweak/music music
file:///home/tweak/images images
file:///home/tweak/tmp tmp
file:///home/tweak/videos videos

You are probably aware of it. Just thought I should mention it, just in case. No problem to fix manually, but it seems more professional if the install gets it right the first time smile

@porkpiehat

FWIW I agree with you. I'll raise it on github.

Re: BunsenLabs Hates Wallpaper.

Thank you. Your opinion is worth quite a bit (at least to me.)

Re: BunsenLabs Hates Wallpaper.

^ So maybe put the BL wallpapers somewhere like /usr/share/wallpapers (and use this path in nitrogen.cfg) -- if the user wants to use a local directory, he/she can change the path in Nitrogen. IIRC, #! used a symlink from ~/Pictures/wallpapers to /usr/share/wallpapers, and this confused people when they needed root access to add walls there, so that's not a good solution.

Re: BunsenLabs Hates Wallpaper.

The nitrogen directory path setting has been moved from menu.xml to nitrogen.cfg in the latest bunsen-configs.

The wallpapers are installed to /usr/share/backgrounds/bunsen/bunsen-images because some other packages also put wallpapers in /usr/share/backgrounds.

There is a symlink from ~/Pictures/wallpapers/shared to /usr/share/backgrounds to pick up any wallpapers that have been installed there. Users are free to put their own wallpapers in  ~/Pictures/wallpapers without having to edit any config files or use any root powers. Both locally installed wallpapers and the system images will appear in nitrogen's list without any tweaking. I think this is a reasonably transparent solution.
(This is what happened in #! too btw - anyone who thought they needed to invoke root to install wallpaper was getting confused.)
