Feed Title: openSUSE News

Default wallpaper has common path across openSUSE, SUSE

We will be newly using png for the default wallpaper set on openSUSE Tumbleweed and upcoming versions of openSUSE Leap and Leap Micro.

The driver behind the decision is the unification of wallpaper paths with SUSE Linux Enterprise via a compatibility symlink because the format had to be the same. SLES and SLED have been using PNG since the last rebrand in SLE 15 Service Pack 3 and openSUSE has been using JPG up until now.

Using a common default wallpaper path allows applications utilizing wallpaper or similar system branding to be re-run on SLES and openSUSE without a need to be rebuilt.

The small price for using the lossless format is a slight increase in size, however, we do use optipng so it’s within units of megabytes for all wallpapers resolutions combined.

ls -la /usr/share/wallpapers/openSUSEdefault/contents/images/1600x1200.png -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 417791 Apr 5 13:14 /usr/share/wallpapers/openSUSEdefault/contents/images/1600x1200.png

ls -la /usr/share/wallpapers/SLEdefault/contents/images/1600x1200.png -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 417791 Apr 5 13:14 /usr/share/wallpapers/SLEdefault/contents/images/1600x1200.png

ls -la /usr/share/wallpapers/SLEdefault lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 15 Apr 5 13:15 /usr/share/wallpapers/SLEdefault -> openSUSEdefault

We’ve also supplied new apple-touch-icon, which was part of SUSE Linux Enterprise distribution logos and this was missing on the openSUSE side.

Since this is effectively a change of a default wallpaper we recommend users who use the default wallpaper to log out and log in to avoid any glitches. Please ensure the system was able to re-read /usr/share/wallpapers/openSUSE-default-static.xml

The great news about this is that we plan to come up with a new wallpaper collection for openSUSE Leap 16 as well as openSUSE Tumbleweed, which hasn’t seen a wallpaper change for a while; just view it as a nice little fire drill.
