No thumbnail for slideshow xml if files are in relative paths to my home directory
I made a slideshow xml like:
<background> <static> <duration>60</duration> <file>Pictures/mybackground/image-0.png</file> </static> .................... </background>
And I added an background properties xml file in
to register the slideshow xml. However, in GNOME settings, it appeared as solid color,
not as an image thumbnail. But setting the wallpaper to it is working.
If I replace the file paths with absolute paths, its thumbnail shows up.
Steps to reproduce:
- Make a slideshow background xml with file paths relative to your home directory
- Add an xml file in
- Open GNOME Settings
- Find its thumbnail
In addition, differently from https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SlideshowWallpapers, relative filename paths in background properties xml files are not working.
GNOME version 3.34.2 Arch Linux
