I have installed Nemo from the Cinnamon PPA and used the instructions here to set it as the default file manager on my system (Ubuntu Raring). It works perfectly, but causes a strange issue with the system wallpaper.
When I log in, no wallpaper is loaded and the background is simply the remnants of LightDM with the login box etc visible. Only when I open Nemo, close it, and open it one more time does the wallpaper load. I assume this means that Nemo has taken over responsibility for the desktop from Nautilus, but I would like to know how to have it load the wallpaper immediately. Thanks for any help.
