How do you change wallpaper in LXDE 10

Post by jacatone »

I'm using Linux Mint 10 LXDE and can't seem to figure out how you change wallpaper. Anyone know? Thanks.

Hi,

I logged in to Linux Mint 11 LXDE and these are the screenshots:
It should be the same as Mint LXDE 10.

Right Click on your Desktop (Screenshot 1):

If you've got your system set to open the OpenBox menu when you right-click the desktop, a different menu will show up than the one pictured above. But there's still a menu item called Desktop Settings that will lead to the right dialogue box.

You can also get to that dialogue box by clicking the panel button and selecting Desktop from the Preferences menu.

With Screenshots:

@OP:
If you tick/check the box in Screenshot no.1 then you'll get the menu in Screenshot no.2 when you Right Click on your Desktop.
Just in case you set it this way; otherwise, ignore this.

For an expanded discussion of this topic, go to http://douwil7.100webspace.net/linux, click Tuning LXDE and read topic (5). The GUI is erratic. Sometimes works, sometimes doesn't.

Yeah, this is bugging me! I am new to Linux, but I have already changed my wallpaper. Wanted to change it again, but the option is not there. I have seen these screens before so I know it was working. But now I have no Desktop Preferences option on the menu. What to do.... :|
