I'm new to Ubuntu and indeed Linux systems.
I have 11.04 installed on my laptop. Here's the problem. When i select a picture for the desktop background, it says that Desktop Background has been changed but the changes do not apply right away. It is only after I have restarted the system that the changes will appear.
This did not happen before. When i first started using this OS a few months ago the changes applied immediately. So what have i done that made this start acting wonky.
Thank you for any help.
