I would guess the partition isn't being mounted on bootup or is being mounted after the wallpaper is loaded. Try putting the new wallpaper on the system partition.

What's the exact path to the wallpapers you want to use? When you change the wallpaper, do you click 'Apply' or just exit? (Just checking.)

ooh i think u right because my software partition that contains the images not mounted during boot

and yes i click Apply but when i reboot i think i have to mount the partition again thats why it will choose the static wallpaper fromt he root partition because its already mounted :)


thanks alot for Enlighting me :)

SOLVED with mounting the Software partition that contain the pics with adding this command in /etc/fstab

/dev/sda3 /media/Software ntfs-3g

then making directory to the same destination

mkdir /media/Software

thats it thanks
