Package: xfdesktop4
Version: 4.12.3-2
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

   * What led up to the situation? When I try to select a photo/image for my desktop, the folder with the image/s appears, but the images are 
"greyed out". That is, if I click on the image, it will not appear on my desktop. 
   * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or
     ineffective)? I was able to partially solve the problem by adding the folder with the desired image/photo to my Thunar file manager bookmarks.
   * What was the outcome of this action? I could then select images in that folder for my desktop.
   * What outcome did you expect instead? To be able select images/photos for my desktop from any folder regardless of whether or not it is 
bookmarked in thunar.
