Desktop background is gray no matter how I change it (SOLVED)
« on: November 20, 2019, 12:13:21 pm »
I have just installed Peppermint 10 and the Desktop wallpaper was just fine, after updating everything, installing a few new applications and customizing my system (using the Peppermint Settings Panel ONLY) I found the background changed to dark gray and won't change no matter how much I try, I also don't know when exactly this happened.

The Desktop is still right-clickable and the bottom panel is working fine, The only problem is that I can't change the background. Other users can still change it including guest user.

What I tried:
- Changing the background using 'gsettings' command.
- Checked dconf editor (GUI) and changed it there (Found it on the Default value).
- Deleted .cash files.

System info:
- OS: Peppermint 10 Ten x86_64
- DE: LXDE
- WM Theme: Peppermint-10-Red-Dark
- Theme: Peppermint-10-Red-Dark [GTK2/3]
- Icons: Peppermix-Red [GTK2/3]

Update:
I fixed it  :D

It turned out that the background is actually changing but it's not being displayed (the desktop folder isn't shown at all).
I changed org.nemo.desktop desktop-layout from 'false::false' to 'true::false', and It worked.


Not sure if I have to delete the post or not  :P

Hi amer, and welcome to the forum :)

That's pretty cool, a first time poster who answers his own question before we even got around to approving the first post .. if only all calls for help took that little effort on our part :)

BTW, we'll leave the topic up because you never know if it may help someone else in the future.

Hello,
I have the same problem.
but using dconf editor to change org.nemo.background layout to true;; true didn't work for me. The wallpaper is still grey.
