How to change the desktop background?





The desktop background of your N9 no longer has to be just black. Now you can use your favourite image as a wallpaper.




Instructions:
  • Create your background image size of 480x854 in PNG format
  • Rename it to meegotouch-desktop-bg.png
  • Copy the resulting file to your smartphone to the Downloads folder
  • In the same Downloads folder download and unzip libmeegotouchviews-modified-default.css.
  • Launch X-Terminal and type:

    devel-su (to become root)

    rootme (the standard password for root)

    cp -f /home/user/MyDocs/Downloads/meegotouch-desktop-bg.png /usr/share/themes/blanco/meegotouch/
    images/backgrounds/


    cp -f /home/user/MyDocs/Downloads/libmeegotouchviews-modified-default.css /usr/share/themes/base/meegotouch/
    libmeegotouchhome/style/


    (the above two commands need to be entered in ONE LINE each; you can see them in multiple lines here only because the web browser splits them).

  • Reboot your phone.

If you want to replace the wallpaper in the future, you only need to change the meegotouch-desktop-bg.png image.

To return to the standard state (black background) you need replace the libmeegotouchviews-modified-default.css file with the original one.

This hack comes from Kuzmichov.
