Fedora :: Nautilus 'Set As Wallpaper' Script ?

Oct 18, 2009

I've been searching around for a script that would allow me to right-click images in nautilus and set them as my wallpaper, on the fly. I wish I could write one myself, but don't know how to.

Ubuntu :: Maverick Desktop: No Wallpaper, Nautilus "miracles"?

Oct 17, 2010

I have some strange things hapenning after Ubuntu upgrade. First instead desktop wallpaper I get screen in same color as gtk theme. When I try to change wallpaper, it opens in taskbar 30 or so Nautilus windows. After half minutes these nonexistant windows (they show only taskbar) closes. Nothing happens. I get same effect one time in other moment, but I can't remember what I did. Desktop icons and nautilus otherwise work as intended. What configuration files I should give?

While using winamp in windows, you are able to set the visualization to "desktop mode" in which the visualization takes up your icons and covers your desktop while playing music. Is this possible to do in linux?

Fedora :: Openbox - Set Wallpaper In Proper Way

Apr 6, 2011

I set openbox wallpaper with:
feh --bg-scale ~/Pictures/image.jpg &
In ~/.config/openbox/autostart.sh last line.
But some kind of KDE stuff overrides it and sets default again after few seconds. I can override it again with manual command. How can I set wallpaper then in openbox in proper way?

Fedora X86/64bit :: Wallpaper Changes Disappear On Next Login?

Aug 13, 2009

The problem is after I change wallpaper, logout and log back in the wallpaper reverts back to the previous wallpaper. Here's what I did from fc10 64-bit:

From System->Preferences->Look And Feel->Appearance choose Background tab.
Frolm Background tab click Add button and browse for the .jpg in ~/Wallpaper

Now wallpaper changes but doesn't persist on logout. Could a folders or config file have the wrong permissions?

Fedora :: F13: Nvidia Wallpaper Spanning With Dual Monitors?

Sep 23, 2010

Ever since upgrading from F11 to F13, wallpaper spanning has been driving me nuts. No matter what the size of the wallpaper, I cannot get it to span two desktops correctly anymore. Most styles (zoom, scale, etc...) cause the image to be duplicated on both screens and the "span" style centers the image between the screens and appears to scale down the image leaving large gaps on either side. It's like the background program doesn't recognize the "virtual resolution".

Fedora :: Desktop Wallpaper And Icons Become Strecthed Unusable

Dec 10, 2010

I already posted on the compiz community forums but I figure more eyes are better than less. I hope the "software" forum is the right place to post, I don't believe I'm having any hardware issues.What I'm seeing is strange desktop corruption/stretching when compiz starts, almost as if compiz thinks my desktop is about four time wider (horizontal) than it really is and this makes nautilus go a bit crazy. All other compiz functionality seems fine. Before compiz starts (with metacity or openbox), the desktop (nautilus) appears normal. I've tried both settings for show_desktop in gconf and they both result in the same (bad) effect. If I use a gradient as my background instead of an image, I see that the gradient is also wrong in the same way (wider than it should be).

Attached are two screen shots: streched-small.jpeg is my desktop with compiz and normal-small.jpeg is the same desktop after running "metacity --replace".I have a dual head setup with an ATI X18000 running two identical monitors, both at 1280x1024. This problem does NOT happen if I disable one of the display or clone them nor does it happen if I place one monitor on top of the other. The problem only occurs in dual head mode and only if the monitors are logically positioned side by side, horizontally.I don't think it factors in but it's worth mentioning I'm doing this with an LTSP 5 thin client configuration. My thin client just happens to be a PC with an X1800 at the moment.

Fedora :: Missing Where To Set Individual Virtual Desktops Wallpaper - 12 With KDE

Jan 3, 2010

I use 4 virtual desktops and under Fedora 8 and KDE was able for each to have a unique wallpaper. Since installing Fedora 12 and KDE I can't seem to find a way to get that feature. I can name each virtual desktop but not set individual wallpaper. I've searched the documents for both KDE and Fedora, they say how to set the wallpaper but not for individual desktops.

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.

Fedora :: Stuck In Infinite Loop On Login After Changing Wallpaper?

Aug 17, 2011

Fedora 15, fresh install.I changed the wallpaper from default to a solid colour. After switching between gradient to colour the system crashed logged me out and upon logging in it simply runs endlessly accessing my harddisk but never actually loading the desktop.I can kill X and reboot, but it's the same problem waiting for me on restart. I really don't want to re-install or delete users (to put it in context, I just spent 3 days trying to install Fedora because Anaconda doesn't know how to install GRUB correctly).

Ubuntu :: Shortcut To Access Sudo Nautilus (gksudo Nautilus) From The Current Window

Feb 11, 2011

Is it possible to change my current nautilus window to have sudo capabilities,? e.g. to delete locked files. It may be lazy but if it takes a lot of navigation then it would be handy to somehow activate sudo from the open window without the terminal command (gksudo nautilus) which always begins at root.

Ubuntu :: How To Change A Nautilus Icon (an Nautilus Action)

I've added a new Nautilus action and I'd like to use another icon that those provided in the nautilus item con list (see attachment).

But whatever image I try (some PNG or even SVG files) I can't get them to be displayed. It seems there is a very special format, size, type to match the Gnome/GTK+/Nautilus icon requirements...

Ubuntu :: Move Nautilus Location Bar In Nautilus Up By Toolbar?

Apr 11, 2010

Does anyone know how I can move the location bar in nautilus up by the toolbar, as shown by this pic:

I'd rather not have to download the source of nautilus and edit the code / compile it myself.

By the way, a guy on Ubuntu Forums thought this was a mockup. It's not. It's the regular version of Nautilus, only I removed some toolbar buttons through the /usr/share/nautilus/ui xml files.

I just want the location bar next to the toolbar to conserve screen space, and be a bit more like Finder.
