How To Make The Desktop Background A Single Color?

Post by tinker123 » Sun Mar 31, 2013 6:25 pm

How do I make the desktop background in Mint 14 Cinnamon a single solid color?

I went to "Change Desktop Background" via a right click on my desktop. There was a "mode" menu there but "Wallpaper" was the only mode.

Thanks.

Right-click desktop > Change desktop background > advanced options > Picture aspect > No picture.

Follow the bouncing ball from there.
There is no spoon.

Just a quick update, because with Cinnamon 3.0.7, it is a little different:

1. Right-click on the desktop and choose "Change desktop background"
2. Go to "Settings" and choose "picture aspect"
3. Choose no picture from the "picture aspect" options
4. (optional) choose the color of the background

Done!
