Description Barry Jackson 2011-05-17 13:27:33 CEST
Description of problem:
If a KDE user selects a different wallpaper for the desktop and then tries to return to the default Mageia background he can't because /usr/share/mga/backgrounds/default.jpg is not included in the wallpaper selection.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Same in xguest

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Change wallpaper using - Right click desktop->folder view settings then try to return to original.
2.The only way is to navigate to /usr/share/mga/backgrounds/default.jpg which a new user would not be aware of.

Maybe a symlink in kdebase4-workspace:
ln -s /usr/share/mga/backgrounds/default.jpg /usr/share/wallpapers/default.jpg

And it should be a symlink to /usr/share/mga/backgrounds/default.jpg because this one is changed by mageia-theme-Default postinstall scriptlets.

Assignee: bugsquad => balcaen.john
Source RPM: /usr/share/mga/backgrounds/default.jpg is not owned by any package => kdebase4-workspace-4.6.3

Comment 2 John Balcaen 2011-05-19 03:50:30 CEST
The easy way is to add/create a package in mageia-theme so we don't rely on default.jpg.
We'll probably do it for Mageia2.
As suggested by ahmad you can simply create a symlink in /usr/share/mga/backgrounds.

Priority: Normal => Low
Target Milestone: --- => Mageia 2
Severity: normal => enhancement

The above patch does not seem to have been applied ?
Comment 5 John Balcaen 2011-07-17 17:06:11 CEST
Nop, i'll do it later today so it would be ok for mageia.
Comment 6 John Balcaen 2011-07-18 02:59:03 CEST
A new packaged named mageia-theme-kde-background should be available soon on your mirror.
I'll add it later as a requires on Default & netbook-kde4-config package.

Resolution: (none) => FIXED
