Thanks for the reply.


That sounds like a sledge hammer work-around.


I should add that wallpaper was working correctly until I did an 'apt-get update' and 'apt-get upgrade' last Sunday:

One idea -- for each of the above files:

1.  Find the previous version.

2.  'apt-get install package=version' it.

3.  Test wallpaper.
