I've got Enlightenment (E16) installed on Ubuntu 9.10, and i'm starting it using the session manager (I elect E16 from the drop down list). However e not recognizing images in ~/.enlightenment/backgrounds

How can i get it to scan this directory, right now I have 4 jpgs in there.

Thanks, Roy

Update: going for the tumbleweed badge on this one

e16 should use the default directory of ~/.e16. Why it doesn't, I don't know. However, you may be interested in trying:

ln -s .enlightenment .e16

to see if that works.

Sorry about killing the badge, if you haven't gotten it already, but I just had this sick, disgusting urge to answer your question :-)

technically, I just renamed my .enlightenment folder to .e16 – Roy Rico Jan 25 '11 at 1:40
