Peppermint 4 Wallpaper
« on: December 05, 2013, 12:10:13 pm »

 Anyone know how to lock the wallpaper on Peppermint 4...?.

 You can set the wallpaper and on the next reboot it vanishes.

Haven't seen this for some time...

Try this .. open a terminal and run this command:
Code: [Select]
mv -v ~/.config/pcmanfm/peppermint/pcmanfm.conf ~/.config/pcmanfm/peppermint/pcmanfm.conf.old
now change your wallpaper  <--this is important, to recreate the pcmanfm.conf file

now log off/on to test it stuck.

Still the same Mark.

This is what came up in Terminal

ben@ben-Dell-DV051 ~ $ mv -v ~/.config/pcmanfm/peppermint/pcmanfm.conf ~/.config/pcmanfm/peppermint/pcmanfm.conf.old
/home/ben/.config/pcmanfm/peppermint/pcmanfm.conf -> /home/ben/.config/pcmanfm/peppermint/pcmanfm.conf.old

From the terminal:

ben@ben-Dell-DV051 ~ $ cat ~/.config/pcmanfm/peppermint/pcmanfm.conf | grep wallpaper
cat: /home/ben/.config/pcmanfm/peppermint/pcmanfm.conf: No such file or directory
ben@ben-Dell-DV051 ~ $

Right-click on the desktop, select "Desktop Preferences", click the little folder at the end of the "Wallpaper:" line, select a different wallpaper, click "Open", then click "Close" ?

Now what's the output from
Code: [Select]
cat ~/.config/pcmanfm/peppermint/pcmanfm.conf.old | grep wallpaper
and
Code: [Select]
cat ~/.config/pcmanfm/peppermint/pcmanfm.conf | grep wallpaper

You can change the wallpaper back afterwards, but you MUST change the wallpaper as described above at least once to generate the new pcmanfm.conf file.

ben@ben-Dell-DV051 ~ $ cat ~/.config/pcmanfm/peppermint/pcmanfm.conf.old | grep wallpaper
wallpaper_mode=2
wallpaper_common=1
wallpapers_configured=1
wallpaper0=/media/ben/1300b0c8-47d5-4109-aef5-09614ade2471/home/ben/Downloads/kosbveteran.jpg
wallpaper=/media/ben/1300b0c8-47d5-4109-aef5-09614ade2471/home/ben/Downloads/kosbveteran.jpg
ben@ben-Dell-DV051 ~ $ cat ~/.config/pcmanfm/peppermint/pcmanfm.conf | grep wallpaper
wallpaper_mode=1
wallpaper_common=1
wallpaper=/usr/share/peppermint/wallpapers/Peppermint.jpg
ben@ben-Dell-DV051 ~ $

Think we have got it.

Did a reboot and its still there.

Again, Many thanks.
