pcmanfm-qt: the desktop background should be compliant with desktop-base

Wolfgang Schweer-3
Hi Alf,

I've checked LXQt related things once again on a fresh stock Debian LXQt
desktop system using
http://get.debian.org/cdimage/weekly-builds/amd64/iso-cd/debian-testing-amd64-netinst.iso 
for installation.

It seems that this issue can be solved if pcmanfm-qt would ship the
file /etc/xdg/pcmanfm-qt/lxqt/settings.conf with the wallpaper variable
set to /etc/alternatives/desktop-background (overriding the related file
below /usr/share).

While a dedicated Debian theme would be nice to have, the existing
resources alone would allow to provide a better fitted Debian LXQt
desktop look and feel based upon the 'light' theme.
Besides modifying pcmanfm-qt's settings.conf file a bit more, the
'lxqt-session' package could ship the /etc/xdg/lxqt/lxqt.conf file and
the 'lxqt-panel' package the /etc/xdg/lxqt/panel.conf file to achieve
this.

All mentioned files are attached.

Further attached is a script 'debian-lxqt' that I've used to test
various settings by simply adjusting the script.

IMO the proposed changes could provide a Debian compliant LXQt desktop
with decent look and behaviour.

CCing debian-desktop@ because there might be people around with more
skills/ideas.

Wolfgang

Re: [pkg-lxqt-devel] Bug#914345: pcmanfm-qt: the desktop background should be compliant with desktop-base

You are absolutely right with all your ideas, only a few things to consider:
* the background/theme thing right now has a really low priority
  (aka i will do nothing about in the next two weeks)
* all the needed changes will be in the 0.14.0 packages
* involving debian-desktop is a good idea
* there will be a debian branding/theme package with 0.14.0 - once
  0.14.0 is released and packaged

And that is the reason for the current priorities - i'm writing right
now the changelogs and release notes for 0.14.0, one can expect the
release soon. So the whole "mess" will be fixed hopefully next month.

Cheers Alf
