...Not being an expert I do not know off the top of my head, and I do not have FB CE 4 on my current computer (eagerly awaiting the next version :D )

I will load the LiveCD later today and see if i can help you out. If anyone else knows before then, please post.

[this is how to change your wallpaper in your startup file, found on ubuntuusers.de, translated for you]

first execute this command:

fbsetbg -f /Path/to/wallpaper.png

Now open the file ~/.fluxbox/startup (for example in terminal: "sudo nano ~/.fluxbox/startup" | if nano is installed, to install nano type "sudo apt-get install nano") and fill in, where you want but before the line "exec /usr/bin/fluxbox", the following line

/usr/bin/fbsetbg -l &

reboot and you got a new wallpaper

Well, in your menu you should find a Wallpaper chooser..

that would be the easy way then ;)..

Wallpaper Chooser didn't work for me. I used fbsetbg and edited the startup file like described two posts before.
