Recently I wanted to try Gnome Shell and installed it. Fiddled around a little bit and then decided to uninstall it. Now every time I restart wallpaper resets to the default Gnome wallpaper which is the blue abstract (changes throughout the day) image.

It does not happen when I log out and log back in. And I don't need to manually change the wallpaper to the one I previously set before restarting.

When I open wallpaper settings it automatically changes my last set wallpaper. Or when I untick and tick "show desktop icons" in dconf editor.

Should I just live with this or is there any way to fix it?
