propaganda-debian for Debian
----------------------------

To browse the background tiles included in this package load the file
/usr/share/doc/propaganda-debian/html/index.html in your favourite
graphical web brower.

A generic way of installing an image as a desktop background is to
use the xsetbg utility included in the xloadimage package.

To use xsetbg to set a defauly background include a line such as
exec xsetbg /usr/share/wallpapers/A-Little-Exercise-1.JPG in your 
Xsession file.

An alternative to xsetbg is the use the graphical program chbg.  It allows
one to randomly choose a background from a list of available files.

NOTE: If you have a background image set in for example GNOME or KDE they
will most likely override any image set with xsetbg or chbg.

If you want to prevent Nautilus from drawing the desktop wallpaper, you must
use gconf-editor to add the following:

  Under /apps/nautilus/preferences, 
  add a new boolean key called "show_desktop"
  and set it to false.

GNOME wallpaper chooser
-----------------------

If you'd like to use the GNOME wallpaer chooser with this package, Jerome Potts 
has provided an XML file (see /usr/share/doc/propaganda-debian/examples/) which
you can put under /usr/share/gnome-background-properties/
