Desktop Background Image

Recommended Posts

I've set my desktop background image like 5 times now and every time I reboot and login it has went to just a blue background. I then have to set the image again. Any ideas?

Well we are in the Linux board :)

 

It's on Ubuntu. I just fixed it. I had the file stored on one of my other hard drives, I copied it to the same drive Ubuntu is installed. Don't know why that made a difference but it fixed it.

If it's not set to automount that drive or partition at boot (or even if it doesn't mount before the background tries to load), it probably defaults back to the original. I know that media players like Banshee won't automount other drives or partitions, which is a pain when your library consists solely of media on another partition, so I assume it's the case here too.

Oops. i didn't realize it was on the linux board. I clicked the thread from the homepage on the new threads widget. :)

I faced the same problem before and solved it the same way. Like someone else said earlier, it's because Ubuntu doesn't automatically mount the other drives. I think there must be some way to set it that Ubuntu can automount the drives which we want. Anyone knows how?
