wallpaper vs screensaver pics

Hi,

a question about using pictures in xfce.4.14  - debian sid.

If I use a directory for wallpapers all pictures where used inside the folder and only them, no pics from sub directorys are used.

If I use the same directory as screensaver pics, all pictues in all sub directorys are used.

It's my fault, did I have something messed up?

Can someone please check this behaivor on your machines?

If it is so, then I thinks it's a bug.

regards Micha

This is the same on mine and has been for XFCE 4.12 as qwell as 4.14. It only looks in the directory and does not include the subdirectories.
I created a sub named "backgrounds" that sits in my pictures folder. I then set my wallpaper changer to look in the "backgrounds" folder.
