I didn't find anything on this with search. In installed the full version of PCLOS E17 late last week, everything was fine. I was using the A-B-W PCLOS51 theme, stars were twinkling, etc. I left the computer for an hour or so and when I came back, no background image, only a black desktop! I checked the other themes and they all seemed to be O.K., than yesterday, I noticed a couple more had no background image. Now the image does appear in the preview area, but not on the desktop. Now today, even more are gone! I'm down to about half the animated backgrounds that actually will appear on the screen although they all show up in the preview. I've tried everything I can think off but don't want to mess up the install. Anyway, what I have here is a HP e6500FPC, Intel dual core processor, 4 G RAM, Nvidia Gforce 7100 onboard graphics and HDA onboard sound. 2 HDDs, both Hitachi SATA, a 500 G which has Win 7 and a backup image of Win Vista and a new Hitachi 1T which has a GPT partition table and about 9 primary partitions with lunux distros and 1 NTFS DATA partition as a "go between" for Windows, PCLOS is on hdb1=/Boot=1G, hdb2=/Home=100G and hdb3=/=100G and I have a 4G Swap partition common to all installs. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
