Commit message

Use nemo-desktop to draw desktop icons under Unity. Fixes LP: #1814506

Since nautilus will still be default file-manager we disable auto-mount with nemo here.

Description of the change

Nemo action files

1) Adds a context menu "change background" which opens unity-control-center-appearance.

2) When user clicks on a image on Desktop, it adds a context menu set as wallpaper.

The settings override is the correct place for this. However, I feel the autostart for nemo doesn't belong here.
Especially, this would be installed in every ubuntu installation, and we don't really want it.

I think this should rather be in the unity-session package. WDYT?

unity-session derives from gnome-session. Would that be ok ?

Move from gnome-session to unity? If unity-session would be part of unity then it might be easier to update things, no? Now it it looks like you have make changes in many/multiple places and in the end these changes makes sense only if unity is installed.

Ah, I see, you are talking about unity-session install file. Yes it seems more appropriate.

I have now moved autostart and action files to unity-session install. See here

And I force pushed this with only gsettings override.

I will try to decouple unity-session and other unity components next cycle. But other unity components should move to git first, so that our ubuntu-unity seed can work without breaking things.

This is now merged. Unfortunately, I didn't notice that you changed the branch and kept your master with the actions. So, I just did another upload (19.04.2) to remove those.
Marking as merged manually thus! Thanks for this.

Yes I forgot to delete the master branch. I just made that for ppa. But Thanks for fixing that.
