Using wallpaper from a photo [Solved]
« on: June 16, 2017, 06:50:10 pm »
I have been asked to find out how to change the wallpaper from a google photo or any other photo other than Nitorgen.

From a photo it does not "fit" the screen correctly

Is there a hidden setting that works differently for wallpaper when right clicked and choose wallpaper.

Regards Zeb...

In dconf-editor

org > gnome > desktop > background

Now change

picture-options: zoom

to one of

"none"
"wallpaper"
"centered"
"scaled"
"stretched"
"zoom"
"spanned"
