Zorin OS 16 beta background setting. (Flat colors not useable)

Sorry, bad English !!! (Turkish)

No problem ! (Use Colors)

Zorin OS 16 Beta Core background settings:
Menu->Settings->Background-->(Only Wallpapers)
Problem !!! Can't use flat colors.


Gnome desktop loves to remove things. The option in the GUI settings to have a Color is yet, another removal.
You can still use the terminal (as always) to set things how you want:
This sets the desktop to have No Picture:

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.background picture-uri ""

Use a color picker to choose a color you want and get the RGB or the HEX for it.
Replace the HEX code below with the color you choose in your terminal command:

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.background primary-color '#474747'

Alternatively, if you still prefer a GUI method- you can use dconf-editor

sudo apt install dconf-editor

Launch from app menu or alt+F2 dconf-editor
Navigate to /org/gnome/desktop/background/primary-color

Thanks !
