Wallpaper not persisting across reboots

I have a different wallpaper set for each monitor, but upon rebooting my desktop is set to the image of the wallpaper on screen 1 stretched across all screens. Is this issue reproduced for anyone else?

Hello sir,

if you are using Nitrogen to set the wallpaper make sure that you have a line that looks like nitrogen --restore & in your .config/openbox/autostart for OpenBox.

If you are using i3wm then you should have a line like exec --no-startup-id nitrogen --restore in your .config/i3/config file.

EDIT: You can generally check out how Nitrogen works here .


This is exactly the information I was looking for. This is a new install and I wasn’t sure what application was responsible for what. Thank you so much!
