View Full Version : [ubuntu] Change wallpaper back to default

December 9th, 2009, 06:10 PM
I have Ubuntu 9.10 and messed with the wallpaper and for whatever I did I can't change the wall paper back or to any other wall paper at all. Can someone help.

I've create new account and still can't change the wall paper. What I did was playing with the gconftool-2 command and I end up stuck with one wall paper.

Here's the code I did with gconftool-2 --set /desktop/gnome/background/picture_file /home/me/Firefox_wallpaper.png

Here's the error:
Can't overwrite existing read-only value: Can't overwrite existing read-only value:
Value for `/desktop/gnome/background/picture_filename' set in a read-only
source at the front of your configuration path

If I tweak the code a bit this is what I get:
Must specify a type when setting a value

Can someone point me to the right direction or show me how to reset it back to default without have to re-install again.
