Ubuntu :: Wallpaper Not Loading At Startup?

Nov 27, 2010

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.

OpenSUSE :: KInternet Not Loaded At Startup/boot 11.2 / KDE 4.35?

Jun 17, 2010

I do need KInternet to connect. Although if in the KInternet preferences I selected that KInternet should load automaticly at startup/boot, this just this doesn't happen. A workaround is possible, by placing an alias of KInternet on the desktop and clicking on that one after startup. However, couldn't I get it to load automaticly like it worked under 11.1 / KDE 3.5 ?

General :: Stop The Rc.local File To Be Loaded At Startup?

Apr 29, 2011

I was messing around with my newly installed Archlinux, in a virtual machine (thankfully not my main computer) and now I cannot boot up. The issue is, I read that I could add commands in the rc.local file so that they would be automatically executed after booting up... so, I added the "pacman -Syu" command there, but it usually asks for a confirmation to continue, and that's why I think it is getting stuck there (it gets stuck just after running the daemons).

So, is there a way to stop the rc.local file to be loaded at startup?

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.

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


sudo chmod 744 loginWallpaper

then run



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



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 :: 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.

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).
