Desktop-Background and other settings are not saved after reboot

If I change the wallpaper, the layout or change to slideshow etc. these are not saved.

Have you tried:

sudo chown username:username ~ -R

Where username is your user name.

Interesting idea, but unfortunately it’s not working.

Is this an installed system or the live environment?

What is not working? sudo chown?

I’m surprised this works given the normal usage:

Usage: chown [OPTION]... [OWNER][:[GROUP]] FILE...

I’d probably write it as

sudo chown -R $USER: $HOME

just to make it explicit and not reliant on shell-specific expansions (e.g. ~).

installed

the command does not result in me being able to save my wallpaper in a way that it is still present after a reboot.

this doesn’t work, either. (the command doesn’t give me errors, but the wallpaper is not saved)
