I changed my background desktop image today but I cannot find any options to change it to fill or span the screen like this:

Appearance

Any ideas?

For 17.04 the default picture options for wallpapers can be set via the command line:

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.background picture-options 'none'
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.background picture-options 'wallpaper'
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.background picture-options 'centered'
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.background picture-options 'scaled'
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.background picture-options 'stretched'
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.background picture-options 'zoom'
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.background picture-options 'spanned'

To reset back to the default:

gsettings reset org.gnome.desktop.background picture-options

  • Is there any way to avoid using terminal? – Manos Kounelakis May 14 '17 at 6:57
  • not for the moment in 17.04 - but if some nice person helps us adding to budgie-welcome then we can create a nice "tweak tool". – fossfreedom May 14 '17 at 9:36

Late to answer on this one, but for anyone who is interested.

You can also install the gnome-tweak-tool, which is now called gnome-tweaks as of 18.04. You to the tab Appearance you will then find the setting under Adjustment.

sudo apt-get install gnome-tweak-tool

or if you are version 18.04 or later.

sudo apt install gnome-tweaks
