shows previous image on new login for a few seconds


Description José Luis González 2016-05-02 14:12:40 CEST
xfdesktop shows for a couple of seconds the image that was shown in previous login, before showing a random one. This is annoying, unnecessary and anti-aesthetic. And in some machines the period is less than one second, which means the previous image is shown briefly and then changed.

Please, don't load the previous image. Only the new random image should be shown on new logins if random and login are selected. If this means delaying setting the image a second or two, so be it. A sensible background should be set initially by the login manager and a colour is usually set by xfdesktop as well.

Thanks in advance.
