Re: Wallpaper change not save after login

I'm not having this issue with my current official Helium 64 bit setup, but I did experience it several times while testing our alpha, beta and RC1 images. My quick-fix was to use feh to set the wallpaper instead, comment out the nitrogen entry in the Openbox autostart file and add the following line...

sh ~/.fehbg &

@johnraff posted a fix, but since feh works I never tried it. I'll look for it and post back...

Re: Wallpaper change not save after login

I set my wall via nitrogen to  BL-Beam-grey.png, Zoomed Fill, Apply, logout and in, I still have the default wall. Nitrogen's GUI shows the grey version as "Currently set background". Running 'nitrogen -restore' in a terminal or clicking Apply in the GUI sets the grey wall, but it is lost again if I logout. ~/.config/nitrogen/bl-saved.cfg shows the following...

[xin_-1]
file=/usr/share/images/bunsen/wallpapers/default/BL-beam.png
mode=5
bgcolor=#001e44

[:0.0]
file=/home/rachel/Pictures/wallpapers/bunsen/default/BL-beam-grey.png
mode=5
bgcolor=#000000

I have no svg files in my wallpaper folder, nor anything other than the default BL wallpapers.

The only terminal output is...

rachel@TyrellCorp:~$ nitrogen --restore
UNKNOWN ROOT WINDOW TYPE DETECTED, will attempt to set via normal X procedure
rachel@TyrellCorp:~$

@joseh55|, let me know if you need a walk-through for using feh to set your wall while we try to resolve this.

Re: Wallpaper change not save after login

No problems saving a wallpaper setting on a fresh install. I'll try and see if and where it goes wrong.

#####################

and moving "nitrogen --restore" at the final lines of autostart script

Re: Wallpaper change not save after login

nitrogen --restore WFM on a fresh install. I'm wondering if setting a Blob theme is corrupting bg-saved.cfg, because here's what my new, working one looks like, the default entry has been overwritten and there's no second entry...

So should the extraneous entries be removed from bg-saved.cfg?

No, I'm just reporting what I'm seeing, I'm not proposing a fix. But my workaround of using feh instead works fine if you are bitten by this bug ATM.

Re: Wallpaper change not save after login

I can't reproduce this issue. Changing wallpaper directly via the menu or via a BLOB theme change works and survives logout/in. bg-saved.cfg has only a single entry the whole time. There is no entry starting [:0.0], and nor should there be.

If anyone is still getting this problem on a new install (not upgrade from Hydrogen/Deuterium) could you please post instructions on how to reproduce it?

Re: Wallpaper change not save after login

@johnraff, WFM with a fresh install. I have 2 partitions now breathing fresh helium, I'll keep one as a control and mess with the other, see what I can see over the next week or two.

Re: Wallpaper change not save after login

What if you deleted bg-saved.cfg so will nitrogen recreate it?

I tried that and it didn't work, but now with a fresh install I can't reproduce, bg-saved.conf is instantly and correctly overwritten every time.

Ahh I see...sounds like a bug to me.

Re: Wallpaper change not save after login

It's happened again after installing Gimp and gimp-extras via the menu. The wall stuck for a couple of reboots, but now it's back to Beam...

mode=5
bgcolor=#001e44

Honestly, I'm ready to strip nitrogen, pnmixer, tint2 and a whole bunch more (conky, for one) out of BL. It's a great desktop, but it could be leaner and more reliable.

Re: Wallpaper change not save after login

I still can't reproduce this issue, even after installing those packages (what led you to think they were involved btw?) Have to test this on a VM unfortunately, because I'm setting the desktop differently on my main system, but it all seems solid enough.

@hhh how did you set that wallpaper? I'm really struggling to imagine where that [:0.0] entry came from. Are you sure there aren't some archaic config files left in your $HOME?

I'm also curious to hear what you object to about pnmixer. It worked fine in #! and still does for me in Helium. Maybe a separate topic?

There are alternatives to tint2 of course, if it turns out to be buggy - is it though? Or do you plan to work with no panel at all?

Re: Wallpaper change not save after login

Just done a clean install of Helium on my desktop machine and no issues with changing wallpaper. Clean /home so no legacy files whereas my laptop with retained /home I had the [0.0] issue.
