Can't change wallpaper in a list

Under 4.4, you could get a new random wallpaper from a list by running "xfdesktop --reload".  Under 4.6, that isn't working.  Any suggestions?

Re: Can't change wallpaper in a list

Use xfconf, its much easier and faster.

xfconf-query -v -c xfce4-desktop -p /backdrop/screen0/monitor0/image-path -s %f

%f being the path to the new image.  If you want a script that'll pick a random wallpaper from a specified directory try http://sometimes.strangled.net/scripts/ … all-4.6.pl
