Thread: Desktop Wall Paper Options?

  1. #1

    Default Desktop Wall Paper Options?

    I have been searching the web for a solution to a small problem that is driving me nuts. I have a dual monitor set up, and everything works great, except in 12.3 Gnome the options for stretching, fitting etc. a wallpaper have mysteriously disappeared. I'm not sure whose idea it was, but I can't stand it (especially because one monitor is smaller than the other). Is there a way to remedy this in 12.3 Gnome? Is there a way I can somehow provide separate desktops for each monitor as well?

    Thanks.

    Have you looked for The Gnome Tweak Tool? I was thinking that is what you use now.

    Thank You,

    I'm fairly sure it has no options for desktop wallpapering...just shell changes and system font stuff.

    Haha, I find this to be very true: "Software efficiency halves every 18 months, thus compensating for Moore's Law"

    Alright, thanks for the info I will give it a shot. It just blows that I have to try this hard to find what used to be a simple easy to find option.

    Hi,

    Dconf editor is the standard way to configure your desktop on GNOME 3.X
    series . Some example posted here :-
