xfce4.2.2 - lost desktop wallpaper


I cannot replicate any error, because I frankly don't know what I did. However, I have lost my desktop/wallpaper/background image from xfce4.2.2 I have gone through my dot files looking for .xfce4* something, but have not been able to locate anything. However, it seems to recall other settings (such as icons and preferences) but I don't know where it is storing that info. Also, I have lost the ability to right click on the desktop and get access to the KDE menus, even though that option is ticked in the settings panel.

Any ideas what I can do to fix?

This is now fixed ... took me a while, but eventually found that the wallpaper I was linking to didn't exist, hence the segfault. Oh well - got a nice new installation for all of my troubles, which was something that I was meaning to do someday in any event.

Live & learn.

~/.config/xfce4 is imho what you are searching for.
