Wallpaper issue

Hello guys,
Posting to let you guys know that there is a issue with the folder ~/images/wallpapers/shared on waldorf. The permissions on it are set to root only for everything and on top of that you can't add anything of your own to it. It is also apparently symlinked I guess.

Re: Wallpaper issue

What pidsley said; ~/images/wallpapers/shared is a symlink to /usr/share/backgrounds.  From a multi-user OS perspective, this makes perfect sense to me.

Re: Wallpaper issue

I also have a little problem with personal wallpapers; 'menu>settings>choose wallpaper>preferences>add'  select dir '>ok' select picture '>apply' - doesn't retain my directory setting when I return to choose a different picture, my pictures are not shown, but my dir is still listed in preferences.

Re: Wallpaper issue

Yeah, that's because when you call Nitrogen from the menu, you're sending it a command-line option telling it to open in ~/images/wallpapers.  If you want Nitrogen to open with the directories you've specified for its preferences, you need to edit your ~.config/openbox/menu.xml (there's a convenient link in the Openbox settings section of the right-click menu) and remove "~/images/wallpapers" from the "Choose Wallpaper" stanza.

EDIT:  After you save changes to menu.xml, you'll need to reconfigure Openbox (also in the right-click menu) or logout/login for changes to take effect.

Re: Wallpaper issue

The preferences GUI does work; it just gets overridden if you specify a directory at launch time.

The Preferences dialog is not CrunchBang specific.  If you believe directories added to Nitrogen's preferences file should be accessible when Nitrogen is opened in a specific directory, maybe you should consider filing a bug report upstream?  There's an email address in the man page.

Re: Wallpaper issue

OK, my apologies, it's down to nitrogen.

Re: Wallpaper issue

It's all down to the way the 'nitrogen' programmers set the default up.

It's easiest to just put your pics in ~/images/wallpaper.
