I have a dual boot Win7 & Ubuntu 16.04 set up. I'm struggling with setting the wallpaper on Ubuntu. I have copied a .jpg image from the Windows drive into my Ubuntu pictures folder, and when I select it as wallpaper it works fine, but on reboot it's gone.
I have done some research, it appears I should change file permissions to 'execute', this is what I've tried, and the errors I got back:
$ sudo chmod +x /home/showtown/pictures/DSC04787.jpg [sudo] password for showtown: chmod: cannot access '/home/showtown/pictures/DSC04787.jpg': No such file or directory $ sudo chmod +x /DSC04787.jpg chmod: cannot access '/DSC04787.jpg': No such file or directory
Am I missing something with syntax? I have used the full file path and just the file name.
