Desktop Background Slideshow Feature Doesn't Perform

Postby jimwg » Thu Feb 07, 2013 7:43 am

Greetings:

Have XFCE Nadia and the Desktop slideshow feature doesn't operate under XFWM. It will shift a background after one minute of being set but thereafter appears to stall. I'd like to use XFCE's native background slideshow feature rather than tack on substitutes like Desktop Nova. Additionally if there's a fix I'd like to reduce the 1 minute rotation minimum down to 20 seconds. I know how to edit CREBS scripts so if I know where XFCE's stores its own I'll try to alter it.

Thanks for any assist!

Thanks for the tip! This non-techie will try to mug thru it! I'm surprised this issue is hard to find on Google!
