Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

There isn't the standard gui to change the background that I have found. However, the easiest way I have found is to use thunar, your normal file manager program, navigate to where you have an image you wish to use for the background, right click on it, and select the menu option 'Set as Wallpaper'.

If you want a GUI wallpaper manager you can install Nitrogen. Just open a terminal and type "sudo apt-get install nitrogen".

Just add the following line to the bottom of ~/.fluxbox/init so Fluxbox remembers to load your wallpaper when you log back on.

Code: Select all
session.screen0.rootCommand:    nitrogen --restore
