I broke my Desktop app

Postby troypulk » 02 Jan 2015 06:25

I have SolydX 64-bit

I usually make my own backdrop list and load it in the desktop app in the background tab and have it cycle every minute with a different wallpaper.

So I was adding two more pictures to the conf-file in the folder of all the pictures I use, I use notepad as my text viewer, I think it saved in the wrong unicode, but I also used a new text file that saved correctly but that didn't change anything.

After that the desktop app in the settings manager would not load any pictures as a background, nothing works and the app freezes when I try to click on image list.

I also tried adding a picture to the ~/.config/xfce4/desktop/backdrop.list but this doesn't work either.

So I started with a new ~/xfce-perchannel-xml/xfce4-desktop.xml file but this did not work either.

So I have been trouble shooting this for a few hours trying what ever comes to mind to no avail.

So where do I look next?

Thank

Troy

EDIT:
I've tried renaming /home/troypulk/.config/ to .config-old and starting fresh with a new set up, this still does not fix the desktop app.

If I rename troypulk and get a brand new user set up, will this brake anything?

Thanks

Try running Desktop app in a terminal and post back any errors.

Code: Select all

xfdesktop-settings

May the Source be with you.

I didn't expect it to work. I was wondering about errors. Were there any errors shown in the terminal when you ran the app?

Just this

Code: Select all

xfdesktop-settings

(xfdesktop-settings:6344): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: The property GtkDialog:has-separator is deprecated and shouldn't be used anymore. It will be removed in a future version.
