Bug#545339: nautilus: need support for transparent composited desktop

Package: nautilus
Version: 2.26.3-1
Severity: wishlist


Compiz includes a "Wallpaper" plugin which allows having different wallpapers
on different desktops. As of 2.26, Nautilus apparently still does not include
support for transparent composited desktop which would draw icons, yet pass
drawing of wallpapers to Compiz.

Perhaps downstreams, such as Debian maintainer(s), should poke upstream?
