I recently started using gnome on a given machine. I'd like to know how to disable the gnome background setter. Things are like this right now:
- I am booting gnome manually via startx with "exec ck-launch-session gnome-session" from my ~/.xinitrc file.
- I use my own background setter on my xinitrc file, it's a fairly simple shell script that set's a random picture that it picks from a given folder, then it sleeps in the background and periodically changes my background from time to time at a given interval.
- When gnome starts my script runs and sets a random picture (I can see that), some seconds after that gnome set's a orange gradient as background instead, my script is still running so after some time another background is set and everything is like I'd like it to be.
- Yes, I have used gconf-editor and disabled the sticky box at desktop->gnome->background->draw_background, gnome seems to ignore this settings though.
So, my problem is that gnome is still setting my background and hence overriding the effects of my custom script even though I explicitly disabled the gnome background setter feature. I am not too smart about gnome so maybe I am missing some other important setting. Ideas are all welcome.
Thank you beforehand
ps. I am not using nautilus as my desktop manager. I have no desktop icons and no right-click menu because I don't need that. I am not sure that's relevant at all, but just in case...
