Package: caja
Version: 1.8.2-1
Followup-For: Bug #771587

Dear Maintainer,

I am using caja desktop as the default desktop background on xfce4 (instead of
xfdesktop). Since the patch I am no longer able to start the desktop background
outside of MATE. Would it be possible to add an option to just start mate
desktop regardless of of the running desktop envoronment?
