  • Just change the background on the desktop, choose one of the pre-configured images, and that will do it.

    enter image description here

    If you want to use your own image then click on the + sign, add your image, and then change the permissions

    enter image description here

    on the image for group read and write and other to be read only.

    And that will do it. No need to use anything else.
