Desktop backgrounds

Post by abderrahman »

Hello,
I have a strange problem. While trying to change my desktop background some wallpapers disappear from system settings->backgrounds. I can't find the pictures in Linux mint some of them in Sarah. The missing pictures still are in their location in /user/share/background. So I tried to edit the XML file by modifying the filename of one of the missing wallpapers after renaming the picture in /user/share/background and It appears now in system settings->backgrounds.My conclusion is that there a file somewhere that forces mint to ignore the missing wallpapers or consider them as deleted.
Could anyone help please!

In the settings dialog where you select pictures, you can add pictures from say your home folder. They do not all need to be in /usr/share. Just the ones supplied bu Mint need be there.
