From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.7 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20021216 Description of problem: gnome-session-properties doesn't set the background properly on login. I have a black background with the transparent lightrays setup in gnome-background-properties, but get the default light blue background everytime on login. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Set non-default background 2. logout 3. login Actual Results: light blue background Expected Results: non-default background Additional info: It does show the background settings I set in gnome-background-properties. It just doesn't set them on login.

Do you mean you temporarily have the wrong background during login, or that you end up with the wrong one permanently? In any case, gnome-session isn't involved, afaik.
Comment 2 Nathan G. Grennan 2003-01-17 17:31:51 UTC
Permanently, unless I open gnome-background-properties and clicking between options to get it to set the background. What program is supposed to set the background? Might I be missing it from my session?
Comment 3 Jonathan Blandford 2003-01-17 19:37:33 UTC
is gnome-settings-daemon running? Did it get removed from your session?
Comment 4 Nathan G. Grennan 2003-01-18 09:51:57 UTC
gnome-settings-daemon is running, but I don't see it as part of my session.
Comment 5 Jonathan Blandford 2003-01-18 21:12:11 UTC
sounds like gnome-settings-daemon was removed from your session. Can you save the session w/ it running, log out, log back in, and confirm that your background is set when it's part of the session?
Comment 6 Nathan G. Grennan 2003-01-19 01:14:41 UTC
gnome-settings-daemon isn't added to the session list if I select save settings on exit. It does appear to run on login anyway. I tried adding it to the manual session and it had no effect.

http://mail.gnome.org/archives/desktop-devel-list/2002-July/msg00489.html Below is part of the patch from the url above that describes why gnome-setting-daemon wasn't setting my background. RedHat's gnome desktop defaults to Nautilus. I always disable Nautilus, because I am very unfond of it. But it has set the gconf setting which gave gnome-settings-daemon that Nautilus was going to handle the drawing of the desktop. In the past gnome-settings-daemon and Nautilus would both draw the background. To avoid this the gconf setting was made. I think the proper way to handle this is to either not let Nautilus draw the background(gets my vote), or make sure Nautilus runs before gnome-settings-daemon and if gnome-settings-daemon sees Nautilus running it doesn't draw the desktop. + /* If this is set, nautilus will draw the background and is + * almost definitely in our session. however, it may not be + * running yet (so is_nautilus_running() will fail). so, on + * startup, just don't do anything if this key is set so we + * don't waste time setting the background only to have + * nautilus overwrite it. + */ + + if (gconf_client_get_bool (client, "/apps/nautilus/preferences/show_desktop", NULL)) + return; +
