lost wallpaers

Postby Fargo » 07 Mar 2017 22:34

I've been doing some work on my father-in-laws computer after he thought he had a virus. No virus was found but he sure had the desktop panels messed up. I'll have to ask him what he did. Anyway, after I ran the update manager I lost all the wallpapers. I tried to reinstall the kde wallpaper packages from synaptic, but they still didn't show up. Was this an issue with one of the updates or is their something else going on with this system?

Sorry, but I failed my clairvoyancy exams! How about giving us a clue about whether the system is running stable or testing... ;-)

The usual system output often comes in useful:

Code: Select all

inxi -Frxz
p.s. I suggest you remind your father-in-law that viruses are a MS Windows affliction!

LOL. I sure wish you would study up on that clairvoyance thing. You'd be a lot more helpful to many people on the forum if you were :)

Sorry about that. It just hit me that I left out all that info. I just came here to supply it when I saw your comment.

Anyway, this is a SolydK-8 "Stable" system. Saw some issues with the EE edition but nothing about stable. So not sure why I had this issue. I'll boot up the machine and input that code you gave in a minute. Thanks.

Additional info: If I look in /usr/share/wallpapers/ I can see all the wallpapers are still there. But something happened during the update that the system doesn't look there or doesn't see them.

Chances are that what you ran into was a known issue on the solydk-system-adjustments-8 package that was addressed here: https://forums.solydxk.com/viewtopic.ph ... 580#p64513. Maybe you upgraded this package right before it was updated as described here. Anyway, you can easily solve it by right-clicking on the desktop, select Folder Settings (or whatever the entry is called in your language that lets you select desktop wallpapers:-), then Open, navigate to the new location /usr/share/wallpapers/solydk/contents/images (not solydk-flat), and pick the SolydK wallpaper of your favorite resolution.
