When I go to Settings > Background > Add picture… it lets me browse my pictures but the “Open” button is always greyed out. Same if I choose “Change background” when clicking right mouse button on desktop. I tried selecting files, folders, anything, and even creating /usr/share/backgrounds/ and copying files there, it just won’t let me change the desktop wallpaper. Any idea?
edit: it works if I choose an image from Tweak Tool > Appearance > Background… still don’t know why it doesn’t work from Settings.
This is just a shot in the dark, did you reboot the machine? There were some core updates recently that may cause this issue.
Yes, rebooted a few times. I should have mentioned I uninstalled endeavouros-theming because I wanted to use my own themes, icons and wallpapers.
That doesn’t affect Gnome, the theming is only active for Xfce.
How did you install Gnome, with the online installer or manually next to another DE?
I used the online installer to install EOS a few hours ago, but then I also added and removed several programs, not sure if I did something wrong. Anyway, it works from Tweak Tool, maybe it’s just a bug in Gnome or something like that.
I thought Gnome had removed the wallpaper feature? (bad joke sorry)
I just checked it in a VM and it works over there, I think you have removed a dependency.
Ok, thanks everyone for your quick replies! (and bad jokes )
