Puppy Lucid


Hello everyone, I am slowly working my way through the OS. I am trying to change the background wallpaper. The images are all present but when I effect the alteration, the new background appears for a couple of seconds then vanishes with a message to the effect that the pathway to the folders/files does not exist. Any thoughts would be very much appreciated.

Are you using a personal image or a default image?

In case you need a manual

/usr/share/backgrounds is where you should put new downloaded wallpapers and personal pictures. Below is video for kicks.

Puppy Linux, change wallpaper quickly
