  4. hi when i try to execute the script after inserting the desired images path it says that the image path doesn’t exist. i write the path like this /home/pictures/wallpapers/fag.jpg

    any help is appreciated!! happy linuxing!!

    • Make sure you typed correct file path.

      Open the folder with the picture image and press Ctrl+L on keyboard, it will show you the path in file browser header bar

    • Is you username “pictures” or is pictures a directory in your home? It appears that you may have left your username off the path. i.e.:


  5. I am getting a “sudo: ./focalgdm3: command not found” error when trying to run the script. I tried renaming it to *.sh with the same results.

    • @lavas “sudo bash ./focalgdm3 –set”, and you have to install “libglib2.0-dev” from “https://pkgs.org/search/?q=libglib2.0-dev”.

  6. @Ji M, your focalgdm3 requires libglib2.0-dev “https://pkgs.org/search/?q=libglib2.0-dev”, and it works successfully.
