how to change wallpaper on Mint 12 LXDE

Postby xgreyhound » Fri Mar 16, 2012 8:33 pm

I know this probably ranks as one of the stupidest questions of all time, but how do one change the wallpaper on Mint 12 LXDE? I tried Right Clicking on an image in Firefox and choosing "Set as Desktop Background" but nothing happens. hope someone can help.

Moved here by moderator!

Hi Barton!

I moved your post to where the LXDE people will find it more easily. I'm not on LXDE but but a quick search showed the following:

More than one solution suggested I'm afraid and for older versions. I'd try the last post... Maybe?! :?

Thanks, I found to how-to guide and edited the pcmanfm.conf film to point to my preferred wallpaper. Very happy now!
