Have accidently removed a desktop background image (lotus/pond) and would very much like to have it back. Would someone please tell me how to do this? I've read in Help that this image is not removed from my computer but don't know how to proceed.
Up until KDE4 I could select a different image for each of the 4 virtual desktops. Now I tried Suse11.1 KDE and it seems like there is no such option. I can change the background image allright, but all 4 desktops have the SAME image.
i am a new guy here..i unfortunately removed all my files from /home folderrm -rf ~ /. picasa / As some of the files were important i tried recovering data using foremost..i used the command foremost -i /dev/sda1 -o /mnt/foremostThen there started a process..it was downloading something..and i left the computer for an hour or so..when i return there was nothing on screen..so i reloaded the system..And after that when i try to login i get the error"xsession: warning: unable to write to /tmp; xsession may exit with an error"..so when i googled for it i found its because there is no memmory in my /root ..so i tried login via console (tried ctrl+alt+f1..after the login screen appears..when i type ctrl+alt+f1 i get a black screen)..but nothings happening...how can i login via console..can my datas be recovered.
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.
I have 2 RAID1 hard drives with possibly hardware errors, (when I tried to mount them in a degraded array, they won't start, throwing some Buffer I/O errors) So I used ddrescue to make a disk image out of one drive, ran losetup to use the image file as loopback device:
Code: losetup /dev/loop0 imagefile.img
but when I tried to assemble a raid array including the /dev/loop0 device like:
it will complain that no superblock is found on /dev/loop0 device. With desperation, I tried to create a legacy raid array with following command, of course, including one of the bad drives:
Code: mdadm -B /dev/md0 --level=1 -n2 /dev/sdb1(bootable partition on the bad drive) /dev/loop0
I successfully created a new RAID1 array, but when I tried to mount it
Now the only thing I haven't tried is to clean the superblock by doing --zero-superblock, and not sure if that will solve the problem. Should I get a second drive to hold my broken drive image so that I might be able to assemble a good RAID1 array or should I continue working on the only disk image file I recovered from one of the broken drives?
Since recently I have installed windows (dont worry I will be back to ubuntu soon enough but I've ran into some trouble), I had installed windows on my main hard disk (I couldn't install windows on my 2nd hard disk for some reason).
There were 2 partitions on the main hard disk, 1 which had all my data and another which had all the system fyles for ubuntu on it I believe.
Now I deleted the small system fyle partition and installed windows over it thinking I'd have all my data on the other partition when I needed.
But when I started up ubuntu with a live USB (I had made it prior to deinstalling ubuntu because I wanted to go back asap) and browsed my files, I noticed that I couldn't get to my private data anymore!
The /home/user partition is still there but it only has a file in it which says something like "recover-private-data.desktop" but when I double click it (made it executable) it just pops up a terminal real fast and disappears.
I'm currently writing a little script that gets a random image from the xkcd website and then sets it as the desktop background. I grab the picture with wget, and to prevent the script from spamming by creating a new file for each image the new picture always gets downloaded to "wall.png". Apparently this is a problem for gconftool-2. When I run the following command for the first time, the background changes:
I've recently installed Ubuntu Netbook Remix 10.4 on my HP Mini 210 HD, and installed gtk2-murrine package to utilize a theme I downloaded gnome-look.org/content/show.p...content=124548...This all worked well, until I attempted to change the background on the Gnome desktop. Upon entering the Appearance configuration, there is a file explorer fork-bomb that occurs and floods my Taskbar for up to a minute after I've entered the config. Has anyone ever experience this and if so, how can I fix this?On top of this, I cannot change the background even if I select a new image.
After installing gnome-color-chooser for Ubuntu 10.10, I followed all the steps to enable transparent gnome menu. When I logged out and logged back into my user, the gnome panel menu was transparent as It should be however, the desktop background changed color and I cannot change the desktop by right clicking the desktop. If I do right click and try to, the entire desktop and all programs freeze. The mouse works but that is it. Whenever I try to open gnome-color-chooser, I get this error message : ERROR Could not open or create file /home/User/.gtkrc-2.0-gnome-color-chooser. I have uninstalled and reinstalled both gnome color chooser and gnome panel with no luck.
I was installing a bunch of packages and one of them ended up changing the background image. This was seen after logging back in. I proceeded to right click on the background and change it back while logged in. After a 2nd reboot I could see it changed it for my userid, but I still get that wrong background during the login prompt. How can I change it back for there?
I've been messing with settings of nautilus via Code: "Edit" > "Backgrounds and Emblems..." and selected a background image. And from that moment on, nautilus crashes (reloads) on almost every right click, menu opening, and almost any action, nautilus should do (as a file manager). Running Nautilus from Terminal and observing the output left me with a blank output ... no errors, no warnings, just reset.
Does anyone know how to set the background of a terminal to be an image, and not have it slightly transparent? I've set an image as my Terminal background, but now when I open a terminal over other applications I can see those applications through my Terminal background. Is there any way to stop this from happening?
I have noticed on a couple of the newer installs I have done, that the Skydome image is faded. It appears to have about 35% lower contrast than it should. I always use the same one, I have compared it to the local file, I am a professional photographer, so I can say it has nothing to do with the image itself, but rather it is some hidden setting somewhere, as I have tried cranking up the image's native contrast, and nothing changes.This happened before, and in the course of normal compiz tweaking, it went away, but I would like to figure out where that is, as CCSM has so many settings, and it may not even be a compiz setting, but rather a system setting. I just do not know.

I have seen this done and I have done it my self years ago but I cannot remember how to do it. I think I used a program called bootsplash, but when I try to install it in debian it installs splashy. Now I can get the boot up and shutdown boot splash but I cannot figure out how to get a background in the console. Im using debian 5 lenny if that helps anyone. I have searched but all i can find is info on the boot up and shut down images.
