Topic: xDesk wallpaper workaround for Win8
Yesterday I'm trying win8 and saw that the wallpaper is not displayed with LiteStep (I'm using XDESK-1.3.1).
The rest appears to remain the same as win7, the OS is really light and fast, but I think they should get someone more talented (preferably someone using LiteStep) to work on the interface. The good news is that I do not have to wait a module to be updated to take back my wallpaper because there is a solution (at least for XDESK).
*xDeskOverlay 0 0 $resolutionX$ $ResolutionY$ WallPatch # WallPatchPaintingMode .image WallPatchImage $ThemeDir$wallpaper.bmp
The bad news is that you can not make any changes to the wallpaper using explorer while using LiteStep Shell as standard. In other words, you have to use a module/workaround with LiteStep, or use a program to accomplish this task.
Here's the result:
if you set the wallpaper as a slideshow, XDESK will work normally if you use this code.
