10.6: View debug info about current desktop picture
Authored by: AveryTimm on Nov 04, '09 09:27:49PM

I was able to get it to work with 10.6.1. The info shown could be useful if it would tell you what the current desktop is when it's set to pick one at random. I have a lot of backgrounds and I let it pick a random at login. Problem is if I see one I want to get rid of, it's a pain to find. There is an AppleScript to do it, but it only works on the main monitor. I think it was OS 8 (or maybe as late as 9) that the random background option first appeared, and then it would show you the name of the current background. It was in the space to the right of the little screen with the recycle looking symbol in it. It looks like it should still be there. It would be nice if it showed the current image, even when it is set to random and have a button to reveal the location of that image. I think I remember saying that in April...of 2001.
