Having made no changes to my system, I booted/logged-in today to an odd behaviour: the wallpaper I see at login persists into the session. I have a wide image I use to span two monitors, but the "spanned" version doesn't show up when the login is complete. Instead, it looks like this:
Note the Ubuntu logos (x2) in the lower left of "each" pane, the mis-match of paper to monitor, and (most of all!) the lack of spanning.
- re-booted, to no avail;
- attempted to reset the wallpaper, but new settings don't "take", although when I run
gsettings list-recursively org.gnome.desktop.background, the new image file appears as the
org.gnome.desktop.background picture-urivalue; and
- checked "unity tweak tool", but didn't notice anything amiss.
The output for
gsettings list-recursively org.gnome.nautilus.desktop is:
org.gnome.nautilus.desktop trash-icon-name 'Trash' org.gnome.nautilus.desktop text-ellipsis-limit 3 org.gnome.nautilus.desktop background-fade true org.gnome.nautilus.desktop home-icon-visible false org.gnome.nautilus.desktop trash-icon-visible false org.gnome.nautilus.desktop network-icon-visible false org.gnome.nautilus.desktop font '' org.gnome.nautilus.desktop network-icon-name 'Network Servers' org.gnome.nautilus.desktop home-icon-name '' org.gnome.nautilus.desktop volumes-visible false
The system otherwise seems to be functioning properly.
I'm on 14.04 LTS (at least for a little while longer!). Any help appreciated!
