Hello, recently, I upgraded my linux desktop to linuxmint 18.2 with cinnamon. The problem I am facing is that I am unable to change the background image. Right after the upgrade, I was able to change the background image. I installed a few more applications including Insync (with nemo integration), updated a few other packages and rebooted the machine.
The background image after the reboot is totally grey and I am now not able to change the image at all. I notice from the output of
Code: Select all
gsettings get org.cinnamon.desktop.background picture-uri
that the right background image is selected. In fact, if I change the image, the correct file is listed as the output of this command. However, the background continues to be grey.
I did a search on this issue and tried some of the solutions proposed. None of them seem to help my situation. Any help is greatly appreciated.
PS: When I logout or lock the screen, the image shows up on the login screen. But once I login, the background turns grey.
