changing background colour - xfconf-query interface

I'm the Debian package maintainer for "floatbg" which gradually changes the desktop background colour over time, and I just hacked in Xfce support.

To avoid linking with libxfconf and having the floatbg package pull in dependencies which Gnome or plain-X users might not want installed, I'm calling out to xfconf-query (I know it's not the most efficient way...) but I wonder, is that command-line interface stable, or likely to change?

At the moment I'm using Xfce4 4.6.1 from lenny-backports.

Re: changing background colour - xfconf-query interface

Hello Dave,

I use the same method in scripts for random wallpapers, works fine.  The API should be pretty stable as of 4.6, although some channel/properties might change from version to version.  You should have included a link to your app smile
