Ubuntu :: No Wallpaper In Gnome 3?

Jun 2, 2011

Trying Ubuntu yet again (seems to occur every 6 months or so!)

I've installed Natty, and wasn't so keen on Unity so I decided to try Gnome 3. Not sure if I prefer it either but better than unity I think so giving it a go.

Anyway, my problem is that I don't have a wallpaper and changing it doesn't have any effect, it's just a solid colour.

At first I didn't have a desktop at all but changing a setting in the gnome 3 tweak tool (Have file manager handle the desktop > on) fixed that. Then I went to install nautilus elementary but that messed up my wallpaper, hence it's now blank. I've reverted to Nautilus now but I'm not sure elementary actually worked as it didn't look any different.

OpenSUSE :: Wallpaper Will Not Change In Gnome?

Jan 9, 2010

I have just installed opensuse 11.2 and am using the gnome desktop environment. I just can't get it to change wallpapers. I select a wallpaper in the list, and nothing happens. I download a wallpaper and add it to the backgrounds. select it. nothing happens. I don't particularly like the default wallpaper and I hate to abandon the whole OS just because of this, but it's irritating.

Fedora :: F11 Boots To Wallpaper But No Gnome After 2.6.30.5-43 Kernel Update

Sep 8, 2009

Applied several updates last night including a 2.6.30.5-43 kernel and a suggest kmod-nvidia but the 5-43 kernel boots to a wallpaper gnome screen the first time.

Booted to the "fallback" 2.6.29....17 kernel and it worked fine.

Then 2.6.30.5.-43 also booted but without nvidia.

Installing akmod-nvidia as sugggested in other posts. Also see a kmod for this kernel.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Creating Wallpaper Slideshows In Gnome

May 16, 2011

In my Gnome 2.32.1 running in opensuse 11.4, when I go to select wallpaper for my desktop, one of the options is a space-based slideshow. The files reside in /usr/share/backgrounds/cosmos. When I go there, there are the jpegs with an xml file that seems to controle the slideshow. Is there some kind of utility for creating this xml file? To create one manually, especially with a lot of pics, seems kinda cumbersome.

Fedora :: Gnome Desktop Wallpaper Changes Don't Stay In Effect After Reboot

Jun 9, 2010

This is something that I started to notice in F12 and it appears to be the case as well in F13. Any changes that I make to my desktop wallpaper in Gnome don't stay in effect after a reboot. Any ideas as to what is going on here? I don't mind the default blue swirly thing in F13, but I at least want the style change from scale to center to stick.

Choosing the 'set as default' option doesn't seem to help either, as that changes the screen you see at the Gnome login. Once I log into my account the default desktop wallpaper is still there.

Ubuntu :: Changing Log-in Wallpaper In 10.04?

Jul 25, 2011

I just wrote a little script to help anyone out if they want to do this. Just download loginWallpaper.sh open your terminal and cd to the download directory run

Code:

sudo chmod 744 loginWallpaper

then run

Code:

./loginWallpaper.sh

and follow the prompts Make sure the pic you want to use is a .JPG and is in your home directory. Choose Option 1 on your first run. It will move the pic to the proper directory on the system and will open the Gnome Appearance Preferences at the log-in screen. After you run Option 1 logout, goto Background then Add button. Select your wallpaper and "BOOM" it changes. Log back in and run the script again

Code:

./loginWallpaper.sh

only use Option 2 to keep the Gnome Appearance Preferences from opening again.

Ubuntu :: Screenshots Only Display The Wallpaper?

May 27, 2010

I'm running 10.04 with compiz under gnome, and I'm having trouble getting my screenshots to capture properly. Currently they only display my wallpaper and not any windows or panels. I tried using the module in the custom settings manager but no key-binds seem to work, well either that or the plugin is failing to load when I initialise it.

Ubuntu :: Missing Wallpaper And Some Flash?

Jun 13, 2010

Im having a bit of a problem with my wallpaper and flash. The wallpaper was fine up until yesterday, when i changed my window transparency, using the murrine engine. It has dissapeared but everything else is there (see Screenshot[/URL]), and if i attempt to choose any picture, the background goes black, and all icons etc dissapear. The tool bar remains though, and a workaround i have discovered is to run nautilus and log out, and back in. This brings back the grey screen.

As i said, i made my windows transparent using murrine, i had a lttle play around with a new emerald theme while i was there. Im running emerald, compiz, the apearance thing, and gnome colour chooser, so maybe there is a clash? Since the wallpaper dissapeared, im unable to view som flash, i can hear it, but not see it. For instance, ..... will load upnormal but where the video is, its just grey. I can right click etc as you would if it was a video, but just no picture.Any help would be greatly appreciated, my specs are on the screenshot, and if you need any more info ill be glad to post. I also have yuuguu installed if someone would like to help remotly?

Ubuntu :: Cannot Change Wallpaper In Xfce4

Jul 8, 2010

So, I had a system failure earlier today. I decide to reinstall xubuntu 9.10 on my computer. Everything goes fine and then when I start getting things set the way I want them, I find that for some odd reason, I can not change my wallpaper in xfce4. Added to that, when I click the right mouse button, nothing happens(yes I have it checked to open the application menu) and when I click in the left mouse button and drag(usually a frame appears), nothing happens.

Ubuntu :: How To Install Wallpaper Tray On 10.04

I did a fresh install of 10.04 x64 on my laptop. I used to run wallpaper-tray (wp-tray) and it worked perfectly. Now it seems to have been removed from 10.04. I've read some posts that some people have installed it somehow, but I can't. It keeps being listed as not in my repositories.

Ubuntu :: KDE 4.4.2 - Remove Wallpaper From List?

Aug 19, 2010

I can add my own wallpapers to the list shown in the Desktop Activity Settings box, but can't find a way to remove them again. Is there a control for this somewhere else, or a config file somewhere that I could at least edit manually? I am using KDE 4.4.2, with the kubuntu-desktop package installed on top of Lucid/GNOME.

Ubuntu :: How To Remember Wallpaper Settings

Aug 19, 2010

I cane never decide on a single wallpaper so I managed to put together this little script, mostly by stealing from other people, and have it run on start up.The first and most important is that my computer doesn't remember the settings for each picture, it just uses whatever the previous settings were. Is there a way to fix this? and the second very minor problem is that sometimes the script uses no picture so I just have whatever backround color was set as the wallpaper.

Ubuntu :: Only Shows Wallpaper After Logging In?

Oct 23, 2010

my first install was 10.04, and everything was working fine. Only last night, and this morning, when I tried logging into Ubuntu, I entered my username, password, but after it accepted it, it only showed my cursor and the login wallpaper. Sometimes it gets to my desktop wallpaper, but shows nothing else. I have a dual-boot with Vista, if that helps at all.

I'm having this problem since some time ago, in which the wallpaper won't load at startup. I have to manually go to the Appearance Manager and load it.

Isn't there a way to do this automatically at startup? I know it's kind of a minor thing, but I'm all for aesthetics of my pc.

Ubuntu :: Automatic Wallpaper Update?

Ubuntu :: Zoom On Wallpaper Image ?

Mar 19, 2011

I have put a local marine chart as my wallpaper image (ubuntu 10.10). It's a high res tif image and looks good.

However, occasionally I'd like to zoom in on a particular point. Is there any way of doing this? (I'm not using compiz - as I don't need that level of eye candy).

I know I can open the image manually and zoom - but wondered if there was a way to do it on the wallpaper.

Ubuntu :: Getting Feh's Wallpaper To Stay On Fluxbox?

Apr 14, 2011

Whenever I set a new wallpaper on Fluxbox with feh, it goes away as soon as I log out and log back in. It is probably relevant to say that my login wallpaper just so happens to be the same one that Fluxbox automatically switches to when it logs in, which I changed (somehow, can't remember how).
