View Full Version : [ubuntu] change Windows 7 background in Ubuntu

July 3rd, 2010, 08:48 PM
I was wondering if it was possible to automatically change the desktop background wallpaper in my windows partition whenever I change it in Ubuntu.

If there isn't a way to do that, is there at least a way to change the windows background wallpaper while still logged in on Ubuntu? I'm trying to get used to Ubuntu, and I thought messing around like this would be good practice.

How is your system setup? Dual boot or wubi? How come you want to do this? I'm sure it's not possible (or if it is, it's probably over complex), but achieving this won't help you learn ubuntu really

The only way to do that is to copy the wallpaper you use in Ubuntu to the Windows partition then set Windows to use that one.

Not automatic, of course and more complicated then it has to be.
