Description:

Just another Service Menu to set an image as a wallpaper. I hope I was one of the many kde users who hated the idea of Kdesktop crashing the moment an image file was dragged on to it or for that matter too lazy to open the Background Setting from KControl. This is a shortcut to get an beautiful image right where it belongs :)

Seems to be OK at my end. Well its not such a big deal actually. Just create a text file called "Set as Wallpaper.desktop" in your $HOME/.kde/share/apps/konqueror/servicemenus and add the following lines to it.

[Desktop Entry]
ServiceTypes=image/*
Actions=Background;tile

[Desktop Action Background]
Name=Set Wallpaper
Icon=thumbnail
Exec=dcop kdesktop KBackgroundIface setWallpaper %f 1

[Desktop Action tile]
Name=Set as Tiled Wallpaper
Icon=thumbnail
Exec=dcop kdesktop KBackgroundIface setWallpaper %f 2

Thats it!!

Same here, never crashing under Mdk 9.0, 9.1 and now 10, and I am a real fan of drag'n'drop, so... I'll send it to my Debian-using friends ;). greetz
