Please post the contents of ~/.config/openbox/autostart, ~/.config/nitrogen/bg-saved.cfg and ~/.config/nitrogen/nitrogen.cfg (using "[ code ]" tags )

## Openbox autostart
## ====================
## When you login to your BunsenLabs Openbox session, this autostart script
## will be executed to set-up your environment and launch any applications
## you want to run at startup.
##
## Note: some programs, such as 'nm-applet' are run via XDG autostart.
## Run
## /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/openbox-xdg-autostart --list
## or
## /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/openbox-xdg-autostart --list
## to list any XDG autostarted programs.
##
## More information about this can be found at:
## http://openbox.org/wiki/Help:Autostart

## If you do something cool with your autostart script and you think others
## could benefit from your hack, please consider sharing it at:

No, that just resets the last wallpaper used which should be stored in the bg-saved.cfg file.

You have two wallpapers listed in your bg-saved.cfg file which might be the problem.

Are you using two monitors, and if so, a separate wallpaper on each?

Re: wallpaper problem (solved)

You don't have the wallpapers directory set to the one you are using

file=/home/ju/Pictures/wallpapers/bunsen/default/Farmers_Manual_2002.jpg

Add the path to nitrogen.cfg:

dirs=/home/ju/Pictures/wallpapers;/home/ju/Pictures/wallpapers/bunsen/default;

maybe you should just remove (not delete) ~/.config/nitrogen/bg-saved.cfg
then use nitrogen to select a wallpaper.

if that doesn't fix it, show us ~/.config/nitrogen/bg-saved.cfg again (the new one), and the output of

Re: wallpaper problem (solved)

that nitrogen version apparently had a problem with conky, the solution is only to change the option own_window_type 'desktop' to 'override'.

Re: wallpaper problem (solved)

Hi there,

Not sure if it's better to reply here or to open a new thread (please let me know if the latter is better). I just want to leave my two cents.

I was having the issue that my original wallpaper (BL-beam.png) gets restore every time I reboot.

If I change it with menu > Preferences > Wallpaper, select the thumbnail I want and press Apply button, it stays during that session, but it's gone the next time I reboot.

I have tried different things suggested in several articles in this forum, but nothing worked.

Eventually I saw that the `~/.config/nitrogen/bg-saved.cfg` stores the wallpaper that is loaded at boot, so I changed the filename there and now it works.

Now that file looks like this: (there are two lines, I can fix the issue by changing the first path, to the default wallpaper, but I see the second path is to the one I choose in the Nitrogen dialog, so probably that's the one that should be used?)

[xin_-1]
file=/usr/share/images/bunsen/wallpapers/default/BL-beam-plain.png
mode=5
bgcolor=#001e44

[:0.0]
file=/home/msoutopico/Pictures/wallpapers/bunsen/1920x1080/powered_by_debian_by_nixiepro.png
mode=5
bgcolor=#000000

So my workaround works but still there's something wrong with the Nitrogen dialog where you can pick the thumbnail. Any changes there are not kept after reboot. In case something needs to be fixed...

Thanks.

Cheers, Manuel
