I would really prefer a single, simple background of my choosing…is it possible to shut down the slide show and select an uncomplicated Wallpaper…
look in desktop preferences
I noticed that despite selecting single bg image, my wallpapers keep on rotating. Here I have background settings:
log out and back in?
I did, still rotating. I selected “Single background” from “rotate every __ minutes” and clicked “Save”, but wallpapers kept rotating. I had to click + sign and select single wallpaper that now sticks.
Thanks RodMyers, I guess I should have expressed my question in a different way,‘wallpapers-settings’ is not working!
…even tho I make changes nothing happens even after a reboot.
I am old skule and I prefer a clean, simple and business-like background,
check the config file
Preferences -> Wallpaper Then click on the Minus button to remove the current wallpaper until you reach "no background"
At that point you can then click on the "Plus" button to select a single file or background color. Then click Save to apply. John email@example.com
I just can’t get it to work…first off I just have the 2 squares, no plus and minus signs…but now I know what they represent I can manipulate them and they respond.
Following your instructions…Click Single Background, minus box to ‘No Background’, then click plus box to select…which I do but when I select, say, my own download it comes up in the sample screen and I save it…but nothing happens…even after reboot!
My config file varies a bit…
…anyhow, I got what I want by changing the config file to target the wallpaper I wanted…thanks for the help!
