I'm having trouble setting up the desktop background as a slideshow. I'm running the latest barebones e17 iso ( I think I have to thank Linuxera for that) which was a seamless fast install.
So far I've loaded the slideshow gadget and added one to the desktop, set up a directory with some jpgs in it, logged in and out and rebooted, but no slideshow. I also removed the gadget and then added it again as suggested in a previous post. Still just the original theme background.
I also installed chbg and got a slideshow running in a window but when I change the settings to a desktop and run it nothing happens. My guess is there is a file somewhere which controls the desktop background and I need to alter the file. One post mentioned a pcmanfm desktop setting but I don't have that tab in pcmanfm. Any ideas?
