After changing my desktop background using a custom image, my desktop stays black, while the login screen has been reverted to the default image. How can I fix that (without copying the image to /usr/share/backgrounds)?
The bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/switchboard-plug-pantheon-shell/+bug/1524723 did not appear in 0.3.2.
The solution would be update to 0.3.2
Install dconf with the command:
sudo apt-get install dconf-editor
dconf org --> gnome --> desktop --> background.
Change picture uri. (total path of image)
If not working:
Open terminal and run:
gsettings reset-recursively org.gnome.desktop.background
Now try again to change the background.
The command form to change background is:
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.background picture-uri file:///home/thepathtoyourfile/yourNewBackgroundFile.jpg
