Thread: Variety limitations on GNOME

  1. #1

    Default Variety limitations on GNOME

    Hello again.
    Tried Variety on openSUSE 13.2 GNOME Live DVD a while ago and it worked, however I found a couple of issues.

    First, it seems Variety cannot read pictures from any directory other than ~/Images. Not even subdirectories inside. Second, it seems Variety plays exact same wallpaper sequence in every desktop; cannot handle each desktop with independent wallpaper sequences.

    Are these actual limitations of Variety still to be worked on, or did I miss something?

    Thanks beforehand.

    Variety can pull images from the web, maybe you should ask at it's developers page (above link)
