netbook-launcher assume background file is an image

Bug #341242 reported by Hubert Figuiere
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Ubuntu Netbook Remix Launcher
Neil J. Patel

Bug Description

the netbook launcher assume /desktop/gnome/background/picture_filename points to an image. This is an absolutely wrong assumption as libgnome-desktop actually can find a slidshow file there.

So the code in launcher-background.c is wrong (load_stretched()). It is even more wrong that in case of error it still tries to pass a NULL GdkPixbuf* to clutter.

I've partially implemented this:

  * netbook-launcher assume background file is an image (LP: #341242)
    - Part implementation:
      - Handle case of no/invalid uri at picture_filename better
      - Handle case of just showing a background colour
      - Set correct stage bg color to match desktop background colour (the
        mismatch between ClutterColor and GdkColor means we are losing some
        colour information. Need to probably create a specific texture with
        the correct color set.


I still need to support the case of gradients and the slideshow. I can do the gradients, but have never come across the slideshow option, so if you could you provide an example file/link, I can get that working too. Thanks.

Changed in netbook-remix-launcher:

I believe this is such an example of the slideshow background
