If you use a search engine, you will find things like this:

Another solution could be to simply use a paint program and create a wallpaper with solid color.

You can do it with dconf editor. Nick on Linux Experiment on YT tells you how. You can even do a gradient.


Some great information in that video and I downloaded it to digest a bit later even though I watched the whole thing .... just be sure and following his advice on being careful using Dconf Manager ...... you can real mess-up your computer .....

At present I only use DM to turn on the sound of a camera shutter when I take a screenshot using Cinnamon DE ..... you already have that feature I believe in Gnome .....
