The wallpaper changes the color itself.


Hi guys,

I am using xfce, and set the wallpaper myself. It had been OK till yesterday. The color of the wallpaper changed, and I don't know what I did wrong. Tried to drop the wallpaper and used the default one (with a little rat in the middle one), the same thing happened.

It is how the wallpaper looks now and the original picture:

How do I fix it?

Thanks in advance.

that looks like an exact negative.
i remember xfce4 used to have advanced background setting options, like saturation and brightness... maybe there's also a "negative" or "inverted" checkbox?

Sorry guys. I am an idiot. I didn't adjust the setting carefully. It is ok now.

Go to the desktop setting. Play with the saturation. Enjoy it

I looked but I couldn't find an option to play with saturation there.

ETA: Perhaps under colour, playing with the gradient would accomplish it.

Mine is different. I don't know why. Maybe the version is different?!

i noticed that xubuntu uses a simplified version of the desktop background gui.
it does, however, still look different from your screenshot.

It's more similar, though. I'm running Ubuntu (14.04) where xfce has been installed as an alternative desktop to Unity, rather than running Xubuntu.
