Bug ID: 368955
           Summary: Slideshow not reloading changed images
           Product: plasmashell
           Version: 5.7.4
          Platform: openSUSE RPMs
                OS: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: Image Wallpaper

I am using xplanet to render my screen background images.
After kde4 had removed the possibility to directly render to the X root, the
workaround was to select  a directory for viewing in slideshow mode, and have
xplanet render the image into a file in this directory.
This no longer works with plasma 5.7.4 (openSUSE Tumbleweed), a change of the
file is ignored and only the first version loaded when starting plasma is

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create directory, put a jpeg image there
2. Desktop Settings-> Wallpaper Type Slideshow ; add above folder ; set to
change every minute
3. change the jpeg image

Actual Results:  
plasma still displays the original version of the image

Expected Results:  
show the changed wallpaper

I tried creating a link in the directory, pointing to the other file.  But even
then changes are ignored and only the (internally cached?) version is shown.
