Re: how to block desktop wallpaper ?

If you don't want any backgrounds for X then I guess you could comment out nitrogen --restore in your autostart, and purge the desktop-base package.

The safest way to create the effect though may to create a monochrome (black?) tile and use nitrogen to set that as the background.

I can't recall ATM how BL sets the backgrounds before Openbox starts.....

Do you mean for a $USER with no root access? In that case if you are the administrator you need to set the background another way (probably via debian-alternatives?) and uninstall nitrogen (or whatever lxde uses).

It is helpful if you give as much information as possible when asking questions, so people don't waste time finding out some basic facts. Eg that you are not using Openbox!

How many users in this scenario? And what level of competence?

This might work for you:

1. Switch to a command line only utility like hsetroot to set the wallpaper so there is no right-click options or other GUI; then remove nitrogen and whatever lxde is using these days.

2. Set the wallpaper from a location regular users do not have write access to. Should be able to create a /etc/xdg/autostart/wallpaper.desktop file for that. Openbox reads that directory when it starts.

3. Change the permissions of your wallpaper setting application - i.e hsetroot - so users don't have permission to execute it.
