Some wallpaper/backdrops ideas
On xubuntu the default folder for "Backdrops" is /usr/share/
I've been thinking on ways to avoid this confusing problem...
Maybe having such folder symlinked to something like ~/.confing/
maybe changing the way xfce stores its wallpapers/
Maybe turning xfdesktop-settings list into a text file kind of list? not depending on the contents of only one folder?
maybe adding a new folder on ~/ whit the users wallpapers, and other on the default folder for the rest of the users? and making xfdesktop-settings see both?
And talking about wallpapers, what about the default webbrowser for xubuntu (firefox), from which you can theorically set your wallpaper, but in the practic just copy the image on ~/ whit the name "firefox wallpaper.format", what if that image went directly to the wallpaper folder (our theoretic ~/.config/
i think the best way would be to change the way xfdesktop-settings lists its wallpapers, adding just another folder to the list, one being the standard default /usr/share/
just my opinion, thanks a lot for reading and have a nice day.
