[OPEN] Desktop background not saved on reboot

Post by heathrobinson »

It is only minor problem but my preferred desktop background does not survive a reboot.
Looking through similar posts it seems the fault might be that skel has not moved the latest settings from /etc/skel/.config/dconf/user to my .config/dconf/user file, could I just move them manually or do I have to use the dconf editor, or am I barking up the wrong tree?

You have posted this on the forum of XFCE4.

So we are assuming you have that desktop.

Skel can be the reason that the wallpaper changes.

Info on skel : https://arcolinux.com/updating-your-sys ... -settings/

We like the wallpaper to be present in a clean install.

Xfce settings for the wallpaper are in ~/.config/xfce4.

Dconf is for gnome, budgie, cinnamon, ... They save the setting there.

Variety is another way to set your wallpaper. Lots of articles about that.
Learn, have fun and enjoy.
But first use the power of the Arch Wiki
use the tutorials on https://www.youtube.com/erikdubois
then use the power of google
then use the power of our moderators.
