    Xfce wallpaper only changes once...

    I just shifted to Xfce desktop and am very pleased with the change.

    One VERY minor point is irritating me slightly.

    There is a Desktop Setting to "Change the background (in minutes):" but when I set that, it works one time then stays the same until log-out or until I change the timer setting.
    For testing, I set it at 1 minute - if I then reset to 2 min & immediately back to 1 min, it changes sure enough after 1 min, but then sticks again.

    I have seen other reports of this "problem" but no real explanation or fix.

    Of course I can live with it, but it would be nice to fix it!

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    Never got it to work myself, same problem. Take a look a Variety for a powerful, XFCE-compatible background switcher.
    Cheers!

    Variety works just fine (after I disable all the extra items for downloading etc...).

    Wonder why the original doesn't?

    Thanks for that tip, anyway!
