I just installed Kubuntu 20.1 but every time I log in the desktop background disappears along with any applet that I set up earlier.
Every time I restart or turn off my laptop I get a black desktop background. The only thing that stays are the linked access icons of some software I put on the desktop.
I searched and found that changing the permissions of the usr/share/wallpapers folder was a solution, but it hasn't worked for me. I tried adding my pictures folder in the desktop settings and deleting the default folders (usr/wallpapers/ and usr/plasma/wallpapers) from the list of sources, so my images would load from home/myuser/pictures and select an image from that folder, but when I restart the system the desktop is black and when I check the settings the default folders are there again, My pictures folder is out of the list, a default image is selected (usually he first one) and the desktop is black. JUst when I click in another image, the background changes.
What can I do? I want my desktop settings saved and appear every time I log in.
I'll appreciate any help on this. Thanks!
