Cinnamon Desktop Wallpaper Gone

Postby ktc138 » Thu Jul 06, 2017 9:46 am

Hi,

I just upgraded my Linux Mint from 18.1 to 18.2.

After rebooting and logging into my account, my desktop wallpaper gone missing. And the background is all white. Icons are still there and everything is working fine.

I tried to change the wallpaper to a different one. But this does not help.

When I log out of the account, the selected wallpaper briefly appears and then I'm logged out.

I also notice that /usr/bin/cinnamon-settings-daemon is linked to ../lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/cinnamon-settings-daemon/cinnamon-settings-daemon, which does not exist.

Code: Select all

bin # pwd
/usr/bin
bin #
bin # ls -l cinnamon-settings-daemon
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 73 Jun 20 23:27 cinnamon-settings-daemon -> ../lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/cinnamon-settings-daemon/cinnamon-settings-daemon
bin # ls -l ../lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/cinnamon-settings-daemon/
total 1200

I have tried to reinstall package "cinnamon-settings-daemon", but that does not help either.

Anyone has any suggestion?

TIA

Ok. I seem to have found the answer to the desktop wallpaper issue. My problem is similar to the one described in this thread:
viewtopic.php?f=90&t=248693

I also notice that /usr/bin/cinnamon-settings-daemon is linked to ../lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/cinnamon-settings-daemon/cinnamon-settings-daemon, which does not exist.


The next thing I want resolved is the above link.

Thanks.
