Lock Screen Wallpaper won't change

Fri Nov 02, 2018 9:19 am
I'm running KDE Neon User Edition 5.14.

I am trying to change my lock screen wallpaper via Settings > Screen Locking > Appearance > Wallpaper Type > Image, but it won't apply.

Other options like Plain Colour work fine, so at least I know the Settings Module is doing something.

I think I had this issue in the past and it turned out to be a permission issue. So I've tried changing the permissions of the file located in my home directory to 777, setting owner as root:root. I found where the system wallpapers live (/usr/share/wallpapers/Next/contents/images) and tried dumping my wallpaper in there and setting the permissions the same as the ones that are already there.

I've also tried looking through the logs (syslog / journalctl -f | grep kde) and I don't see any errors :-/

Tried running the screenlocker via terminal and setting the Lock Screen image for some output:

Code: Select all
kcmshell5 screenlocker
qrc:/kscreenlocker-kcm-resources/wallpaperconfig.qml:50:5: QML StackView: Detected anchors on an item that is managed by a layout. This is undefined behavior; use Layout.alignment instead.

Also tried running the screensaver via a terminal for output but got none:

Code: Select all
user@system~$ qdbus org.freedesktop.ScreenSaver /ScreenSaver Lock


Ideas?
