How to set wallpaper via terminal?
 
I know how to set wallpaper using GUI( I use Gnome by the way), but I was wondering if there is a way to do it through a terminal. :cool:

try Esetroot or xsetroot.

gconftool-2 -t str --set /desktop/gnome/background/picture_filename "file path"

That is one way which you can do it.

It was even put in a script to make things easier, so you can just right click and image and click "set as wallpaper", and it does it automatically: http://www.kompulsa.com/it/itdownloa...utilus_scripts
