Default Ubuntu's background pix to far right of the screen..?

I find that having a pix of choice up on the desktop helps color rolls of creativity... I need to default the desktop background pix to the far right of the screen...

I get zero response to this question in the Ubuntu forums...

At present I am holding 1400 untapped technologies in my mind... Only 300 of which I can fathom... Looking into the 4's caused me heart attacks...
(I seriously damage remote-attackers...)

I have this ability to get into a creative roll in a couple seconds, to document new sciences.. but I delete them an hour later.. or, if I've written it to paper, I burn those notes within an hour, after realizing the weapons America could build from it... These technologies are way too dangerous for humanity, in the hands of the Americans, who immediately modify all new technologies into people hurting and killing equipment...

I enjoy the fun of creating new-stuff.. but I hurt when I must destroy it... I must, so it can't be used to destroy us, because this human race is so primitive, mindless, and careless, that they can't handle anymore dangerous toys... I watch them come and go as twisted-entertainment.. like when I ignite a fistful of notes worth more money than I can count... like when I lit the little map to two undiscovered uranium deposits I had stumbled upon...

I employ desktop pix of choice to add stimulus to the roll.. I set SeaMonkey's Compose on the left half of the screen, and drop the browser to the toolbar.. with the pix taking up the right half of the screen...
But Ubuntu defaults all desktop background pix to the center of the screen... I need to default desktop pix to the right side of the screen, or add solid color to the left side of pix, with Gimp, if Gimp will do that..?

It was easy with Windows, running WinWall... I tried to add WinWall to Ubuntu with Wine, but it super killed the OS... I suppose I need to modify the code that defaults pix to center-screen..? Has anyone done it?

I just switched to Linux-Mint... I peeked into the Mint-forum...
Me thinks this is where the best of the best do their thang...
