New wallpaper problem with Stretch Xfce

Postby No_windows » 2017-10-10 17:37

I've got Stretch 686 pae, with Xfce, running on an old Dell laptop. It was not an upgrade from Jessie. Just before I upgraded from 9.1 to 9.2, I noticed that I could no longer access "Desktop" directly from the "Settings" menu and expect it to work....... most of the wallpapers don't show, or appear correctly, and clicking on anything does nothing. I get one wallpaper that's totally black, for instance. If I access "Desktop" from the "Settings Manager" it works fine.

Please note, this is not the problem that people are having where everything is greyed out.

Any ideas on what is wrong with it?

Ok, over the time I've been at work I would have thought I would have a response. Is there something I'm being unclear about, or need to explain further?

Or maybe nobody has an answer.

Such problems usually are in users home directory, some configuration file is not compatible with upgrade or got borked.

Something that occurred to me later, I believe the program is actually crashing. I can't even close it normally. If I try to close it, I get the window/program is not responding message and do I want to close it?

The command to restart the desktop is

Code: Select all
xfdesktop -R

It's a laptop, it gets rebooted all the time.
