Anything about Ubuntu, Centos, openSuSe and Fedora
Previously using gconftool-2 to replace the current desktop wallpaper via a script (normally a starting bash script). But with Gnome3 its not working anymore. As an alternative or should I say the proper way to do it in Gnome3 is via dconf-tools. Here’s the sample command via console:
$> gsettings list-recursively
will list all known schema and keys
$> gsettings list-keys org.gnome.desktop.background
will list all keys under the defined schema.
$> gsettings get org.gnome.desktop.background picture-uri
to change the value, enter this command:
$> gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.background picture-uri "file:///path/filename"
