    In a new computer at work i'm using latest Fedora 15 with Gnome Shell, then installed wally as usually with rpm, but when wally is running wallpaper does not change.

    Anyone with the same issue? Just to see if it's a Gnome Shell issue or if wally installation gone wrong

    Hi, I found the problem's origin two months ago : gnome3 change the way displaying a wallpaper picture :
    change this line used by Gnome 2 (Fedora before 15)
    `gconftool-2 -type string -set /desktop/gnome/background/picture_filename "$photo"`;
    for this line used by Gnome 3 (Fedora 15)
    `gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.background picture-uri "file:///$photo"`;
    (you can found this at http://efreedom.com/Question/6-34057/Change-Scripting-Gnome3-Wallpaper
    I gave this information to Tony at Beecruz, waiting for a 2.4.2 version …. waiting !
