Open a terminal and enter:
- Code: Select all
Or right-click desktop > Desktop Preferences
Will open Desktop Preferences gui -
Click folder icon to right of "Wallpaper"
Navigate to your wallpaper, click it, click Open.
I've tried to copy and paste them into \usr\share\backgrounds, but I get an error message when I do, and the wallpaper doesn't appear in the folder.
I copied a background from Pictures folder to /usr/share/backgrounds/linuxmint-lisa this way:
click Tools > Open current folder as root .... another window opens
From new window - click on picture, click Edit > copy
type /usr/share/backgrounds/linuxmint-lisa in location bar, press enter
Edit > Paste
close superuser window.
