Re: HOWTO: Finally! How to easily change your desktop to a random file at specified t
I just installed 9.04 in anticipation of the Big Day and now crontab won't change my background.
- It worked fine in 8.04
- It works fine in a terminal
- It correctly changes ~/.gconf/desktop/gnome/background/%gconf.xml
It just doesn't change the image.
Anybody got any ideas?
Update 2009.10.3: After some investigation, I discovered that the daemon to change the background, gconfd-2, does not realizes that the gconf files have changed. The result, no change in the image. Now to figure out what to do about it.
