Gnome – Fixing Wallpaper Size Issues on Ubuntu 13.10


Anyone got any idea why there are no options to adjust selected desktop wallpaper (ie Zoom / scale etc) in ubuntu 13.10 and gnome3 (works fine in unity but i really dont like using it).
Same issue for stock wallpaper and my own photos in /home/pictures:

General system specs
Pentium E2160 @ 1.8Ghz x 2
GeForce 7300GS/PCIe/SSE2
2.0Gb Mem:
Dual monitor setup using 2 x acer LCD screens (AL1716 and AL2202W) latter is selected as main display

System updates all done

Best Answer

You can adjust your gnome desktop wallpaper using dconf-editor tool.

Open it by pressing alt + f2 and enter dconf-editor . Now go to org --> gnome --> desktop --> background --> picture-options and change its value whatever you need.

Alternatively you can change it using command line.

Use gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.background picture-options "centered" to make your background centered.
