Ubuntu :: GDM Background - Cannot Change The Background Image To Any Of Mt .jpg Wallpaper Files And .png Files

Apr 3, 2011

I have spent the most part of 5 hours trying to fix this issue. For some reason I cannot change the background image to any of mt .jpg wallpaper files (and .png files). I've tried using the Ubuntu-Tweak application, but I end up getting a purple screen (default) or a black screen (default). So then I tried using the terminal method by making the Appearance window appear when I would log out. That works, except when I go to use my background image, it shows as a question mark for the image preview, and the icon for the file is a gray box. All while doing this my background images that I tested are all in the /usr/share/backgrounds location. Please help! I really want to get rid of the default images and use my images... :/ My desktop/screen in 1440x900, and most my background images are around that size. They work with my regular desktop for my account.

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.

Ubuntu :: Graphics - Change To A Warped Mix Of Colors And Pixels When Change The Background Image

May 19, 2010

I recently installed Ubuntu 10.04 Netbook Remix on my Gateway LT3103u. I noticed shortly into using it that it has a graphics bug every so often. Especially when I change the background image. Everything will change to a warped mix of colors and pixels. Everything is affected. My mouse, the bar at the top of the screen, text and all. My netbook runs on an AMD Athlon 64-bit processor with ATI Radeon X1270 HyperMemory up to 256MB graphics.

So far I have tried reinstalling, and even the 64bit desktop edition which had the same problem. Ive noticed that it freaks out when i scroll too quick, when changing background images, and on certain websites. Then other times its completely random. When it happens it looks similar to these: [URL]

Ubuntu :: Change File Permissions To Change Background Screen?

Feb 21, 2010

I'm new to Ubuntu Linux but have many years on windows platform. Please can someone help me with how to change the following items.

No.1 I would like to change the HORRIBLE!! YAK!! brown background color behind the word Ubuntu in the start up screen when the machine loads up (before the login). I have located the image file for this which I have found to be: /usr/share/images/xsplash/bg_2560x1600. jpg but the OS says that root is the owner and that I don't have permission to change this. So how can I change this for a color I do like.

No.2 I would also like to change the login dialogue screen style. I know this is possible but again I'm fumbling to see how I can do this. I have tried with the start up manager but every attempt fails, the settings don't take. Once again I suspect permissions are at the bottom of the problem?

No.3 Would like to have a colorful splash screen image on boot up, I've managed to remove the old one (small white 3 ring ubuntu logo on black background) but havent been able to install or replace with a new one. Its been incredibly frustrating, I'm feel sure I'm missing something simple here. Wondering if its permissions yet again?

Anyone who can offer help on any of the above, guidance or advise me would be much appreciated. Please bear in mind that I'm still very much feeling my way with Linux so keep it simple.

OpenSUSE :: 11.3 Crashes Very Often When Change Desktop Background?

Aug 14, 2010

It has been about a month since I installed openSUSE 11.3 (64bit, Gnome), and overall it is better than 11.2, but I have had some stability issues that I did not have with 11.2.

1. openSUSE 11.3 crashes very often when I change desktop background. I haven't experiment with it but it happens with downloaded images.

2. Changing monitor environment makes openSUSE to freeze. Fresh boot with external monitors connected usually works, but plugging & unplugging monitors usually makes openSUSE freezing. (I have to force power down)

3. Suspend makes openSUSE freeze a lot. Usually one suspension works, if I re-suspend it, it usually freezes.

I was wondering if these are common with 11.3 or I'm the only one who is having this.

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 :: Wallpaper Change Slows Down Laptop?

Jan 28, 2010

I have a Dell XPS M1530 which has 4GB of RAM and Nvidia graphics card. I have problem with Ubuntu 9.10 (had the same problem with previous version). If I change the desktop wallpaper from System > Preference > Appearance it seems to freeze everything momentarily (15-30 seconds). Then you see the jagged transition happen when wallpaper changes from current to new.

I tried with wallpaper-tray applet and it has the same affect. I have NVIDIA-Linux-x86-100.14.09-pkg1 installed for Nvidia and all the effects enabled. They don't run slow at all...Like when I move the window, the window frame is fluid and flows beautifully. Is there a way I can make the wallpaper issue go away? Or disable the transition effect on wallpaper change?

I'm planning on getting a netbook soon (probably in May), and the model I want (Asus EEE PC 1001PX-EU17-BK) comes with Windows 7 Starter. Should I keep Windows 7, install Ubuntu 11.04, or dual-boot?

I have already found intructions on how to dual boot the way I want, and how to change the wallpaper in Windows 7 Starter. I also already have experiance with Ubuntu, Unity 3D, and Windows XP.What would be the best solution?

OpenSUSE :: Change The Resolution On Old Server With 11.3 Installed?

Jan 14, 2011

I have given up on trying to change the resolution on my old server with 11.3 installed because there is no easy way in 11.3 to change to 1024 x 768 x 64K colours to accomodate the inadequate memory of the on board display adaptor so I have reinstalled 11.2 which had gui for controlling display resolution.

I must keep my /home partition intact and therein, I suspect lies the problem because in the /home directory there are both .kde and .kde4 directories. Although immediately after installation of 11.2 (network install) kde 3.5 was running, after all the updates had run I ended up with kde 4.3.5 and therefore the same problem of not being able easily to change screen resolution. Is it possible to revert to earlier kde and how should I do this please? Another option I have still to try is to install a display adaptor card. The machine bios is supposed to turn off the integrated display controller if it detects one in a slot, but how do I get my operating system to find and install drivers for the new card?

General :: Image Bigger Than Display - Wallpaper Change

Aug 31, 2011

I am looking for a tool that can resize images and display them on the root window of an X11 display at a specific coordinates. I can use display from iagemagick like so display -window root -geometry '-0-0' -resize '1920x1080>' IMG.png But cannot use it since it does not display on the right root window -- pseudo transparency in urxvt shows the wrong image as shown here. Ideally, I would like to resize any image bigger than my display. Does anyone know of a too that can do the following: Resize the image if it is bigger than some size (aka the display size). Set the images top appear at specific screen coordinates.
