changing desktop background prob.

Post by hugovanwoerkom »

Hi,

I just installed LXDE on Debian wheezy. looks good!
But I want to change the desktop background, however when I rightclick on a desktop that is empty nothing happens. What am I doing wrong?
Thanks!

Hi and welcome to the lxde forums. I friend of mine and fellow moderator on these forums, seppalta, has developed and maintains a web site (Linux LXDE Guide). If you look here:

specifically,

You may find what you are looking for.

Thanks. That has the answer:
~/.config/pcmanfm/LXDE/pcmanfm.con = wallpaper=/etc/alternatives/desktop-background
desktop-background -> /home/hugo/Pictures/keulen_dom.jpeg

works like a charm.
