    Default wallpaper will not change in gnome

    I have just installed opensuse 11.2 and am using the gnome desktop environment. I just can't get it to change wallpapers. I select a wallpaper in the list, and nothing happens. I download a wallpaper and add it to the backgrounds. select it. nothing happens. I don't particularly like the default wallpaper and I hate to abandon the whole OS just because of this, but it's irritating. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Default Re: wallpaper will not change in gnome

    I have had 11.2 (GNOME) installed for several month and I have changed the wallpaper many, many time before. However, a few days ago I went to change my wallpaper as I do every few weeks or so and it wont change! I am stuck with the same image set as my desktop background and I desperately want to change it at this point. I don't want to reinstall for something as silly as this. PLEASE HELP!!!!

    Worse case you could over lay the current /usr/share/wallpaper/ with a
    new photo.

    Hello Druonysus and bret381,

    I don't use gnome, so I don't know if it works but you can try to change the background from the command line.
    Try running this command:
    Code:
    gconftool-2 -t string -s /desktop/gnome/background/picture_filename <path-to-image>
    Please post the output of this command.

    Best of luck!

    Ac est la respuesta a su pregunta, tiene que primero:
    abrir #gconf-editor a travs de consola
    en file abrir new mandatory window
    unset todas las cosas que aparezcan con el botn derecho
    luego
    #su -l
    #nautilus (abre nautilus super usario)
    mostrar archivos ocultos en menu ver
    abrir home y luego tu carpeta personal
    borrar carpeta .gnome2 y .gconf (puedes cambiarles el nombre mejor)
    reiniciar
