OS X :: After Update Can't Change Desktop Wallpaper

Aug 15, 2009

I just did the newest security Apple OS X update and after rebooting the default Apple wallpaper was back on the desktop. I tried to change it but nothing will override the Apple wallpaper.

If I go to the Desktop settings, it shows the image of the wallpaper I have selected but its not shown on the desktop. How can I correct this?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: There Was A Change In Desktop Drag And Drop Post Update

May 14, 2012

It is odd: pre update (the latest) I could download to my literal desktop, or drag and drop a photo from iPhoto, an mp3 to mail later from iTunes.....Now I can only do that from within the finder in the "desktop" window. In other words: If I download (I prefer to download onto my desktop rather than the download folder-window. I want to have control over ny desktop again (rather than the folder-window entitled "desktop".

MacBook Pro :: Wallpaper Set Up To Change Every 10 Min?

Sep 10, 2010

The first picture is my desktop. I currently have my wallpaper set up to change every 10 min. There are 3 pictures that rotate and as you see in the first picture, they are merging together...The second picture just shows some weird 5h*t. This happens almost every where. It happens a lot in YouTube. I have a MacBook pro i7 (2010). It's only 1 month old and this has been happening for like 2 weeks but it does not happen everyday. More like every 2-3 days. I have to restart my computer to fix.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Change The Default Wallpaper?

Apr 16, 2012

How do I change the default wallpaper that appears on the external monitor's I attach to my laptop?  For example, instead of displaying Andromeda Galaxy by default I would rather display my own wallpaper.  I hope there is a file I can replace or something, so I don't have to keep changing the picture after I attach my computer to a new external monitor or projector.

May 11, 2012

Soon after install of Lion 10.7.4 I found that I couldn't change the default image: Andromeda Galaxy.jpg. This lead me to look at Desktop/Screen Savers, when I click on an available image supplied by Apple, NOTHING happens. NO image is set for desktop. The thumbnail loads in the little preview but the selection cannot be saved or changed in anyway.I have done these things...Run the Verify/Repair Permissions Utility.Rebooted and restarted a zillion times.Tried rename the DefaltDesktop.jpg in CoreServicesRead a bunch of blogs and whatnot, and tried to find and answer - NOTHING worked.Before the install of 10.7.4 everything was fine. Now NOTHING. Just stuck on Andromeda Galaxy.jpg PERIOD.I am scratching my head here. Been at this for hours, and still nothing.

Windows On Mac :: Wallpaper/desktop Background Difference?

Oct 5, 2009

I have Snow Leopard and will soon have Windows 7 on my Macbook. Why are the Windows 7 wallpapers so much nicer than Leopard and SL's pack?

There are some good new ones in SL, but it's still not much. The W7 RTM ones are jaw-dropping and I quickly made it the default folder for my SL backgrounds. Is it a money issue or something?


Note: I resized the pic smaller.

For two weeks my screen will go blue and then any data on the screen will come back, either to normal or expanded in scale. In the desktop preferences it will offer desktop and VGA options. Over the last two days it will resize smaller with black edges and display the last wallpaper I used not the current one.

Applications :: GeekTool Wallpaper - Customizing Desktop Settings?

Jul 13, 2010

I downloaded GeekTool 2.1.2 and was fiddling around with some of the settings so I could customize my desktop/dock. Unfortunately, this black box in the upper-left hand corner somehow appeared and now won't go away. I then uninstalled and am now running GeekTool 3.0. The problem persists. Is there a way I can get rid of this box, yet keep the changes I've already made in my dock?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Desktop Wallpaper Delay During Fullscreen Swipe

Feb 18, 2012

I think this is a recent problem, but it could be a problem that I have only noticed recently. This is on a 2011 MacBook Air. 

Whenever I switch back to the desktop from a fullscreen app there is a half second delay before the wallpaper appears.

When I use a three finger swipe out of the desktop, the wallpaper disappears immediately. When swiping between two fullscreen apps (mail and itunes, for example), you can basically see half of each app as you swipe, but this isn't the case with the desktop, it disappears to the patterned grey.

The menu bar does remain there, and when set to translucent always shows the background. I have tried this with a number of wallpapers including the default and solid colours. 

If this is unclear I can try to upload a screenshot. 

If this is common, then so be it, but for some reason I believe this worked differently. Searching came up with nothing but I may be searching for the wrong thing.

MacBook Pro :: Cannot Change Wallpaper - System Preference Crashes

Jun 22, 2008

I'm using a MacBook Pro (Penryn) running Leopard. Every time I try and change my wallpaper in system preferences, it crashes and asks me if I'd like to report it to Apple. It eventually gave me the "would you like to reset settings and relaunch" dialogue. Still continuously crashes. I just want to change my damn wallpaper and this is annoying me to no end.

OS X :: Snow Leopard Login Wallpaper Stuck In Leopard's Aurora - CANT CHANGE

Dec 25, 2009

I don't know about you, but Snow Leopard's aurora is so much cooler. I used a program called "Desktop 2 Login" to change the default wallpaper for the login screen to a different wallpaper. Using this same program I changed it back to L's Aurora. (Still in 10.5). When I upgraded to snow leopard, the login wallpaper did not change. It is still stuck on L's aurora. I have used about every method besides Terminal, and it won't change.
