[SOLVED]Wallpaper changed after logout

Post by swipis » Sat Feb 17, 2018 11:08 pm

Hello, today I installed Archmerged + Openbox, so far looks beautiful! But I run into small problem with wallpaper, I set one wallpaper but when I logout/reboot or shutdown I see my wallpaper just a second and then it changes into another. I tweaked variety turned off change wallpaper every n sec and disabled downloading. Did I missing something?

Thank you!

Make sure you have the latest package from ArchMerge

Code: Select all

sudo pacman -S archmerge-iso-skel-git
It will bring you better settings for variety. We have changed those to avoid problems like this.
It will be installed in /etc/skel. So you need to compare (with meld) the variety folder and yours. That is the best way because you can learn a lot about your system that way. Lots of tutorials where I use meld.

Or just delete the variety folder in

Code: Select all

~/.config/variety
and variety will make a new standard configuration that you then can edit.

or just delete variety all together

Code: Select all

sudo pacman -R variety
or check what your autostart does of openbox. Nitrogen is the one responsible of setting your wallpaper.

Code: Select all

~/.config/openbox/autostart
