Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.

Can anyone tell me which are all the files that will be altered when i change the Desktop background. ?
i.e. Say if i change the Desktop background from abc.png to def.png in which file it wil be reflected. ?
i am using Fedora core 5..
Distribution: Debian Gnu/Linux Lenny on AMD64x2 (32-bit mode), an AMD Sempron 64 laptop, debian, 32bit
It should be no more complicated than right-clicking on the desktop, and in Gnome clicking "Change Desktop Background" and in KDE clicking "Configure Desktop..."
But what files that information is stored in depends on whether you're using KDE or Gnome. In KDE, it's in the ~/.kde/share/config/kdesktoprc file, which is just a config file and shouldn't be too hard to understand. I don't know where it is in Gnome.
Thanks for all replies..
i am using GNOME...
The file which contains the background information is ~/.gnome2/background.xml..
but this is an xml file and not giving much info.. coz the same type of entries are there for all the background images irrespective of whether it is set as Desktop background or not
and also i did like this
changed the desktop background and then ""find . -cmin 10""
This dint give any results and also i searched in whole system and it is saying that no file is changed in last 10 mins..!!!!!!!
so how to proceed next ????
i think some or the other file should be altered or atleast metadata should be altered when we change the desktop background... how to find that ??
