    GTK3 is a requirement for Wayland.

    Is your problem related to this https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=918646?
    A contraire. I did find that bug as well. But I have rotating images. I point xfdesktop to a 'static' image location as the only image. Then I use a cron script to rotate the image and do a 'xfdesktop --reload'.

    These bugs were also mentioned on Ubuntu Launchpad and the XFCE Bugzilla.

    Thanks for the pointer tough.

    Xfdesktop on 12.10 seems to start eating memory at random parts in time while the 12.04 version did not.

    GTK3

    Too bad it wasn't ported to GTK3 already.

    However, it seems that xfdesktop will be merged into thunar as a seperate plugin. Xfdesktop on 12.10 seems to start eating memory at random parts in time while the 12.04 version did not. But, it seems that 13.04 still uses xfdesktop and not the new thunar-desktop-plugin.
