Bug Description

If I select an image to use as wall paper, making it accordingly to Help, after reinicializing, it disapears, unless I had drageg it to "usr/share/background" file

What do you mean by "after reinicializing" ? I don't understand the problem.

I mean, after re starting computer, or after shutting off and turning on

I have a NTFS partition where all my own files, including images, etc. are
stored. I pick one and choose as wall paper. These files are well secure and
don't go away after restart

Your question was explanatory. I copied an image to */home/user*, altered
the "wallpaper" and everything worked! I suggest what in future Ubuntu
manual be emphasized the necessity of having the figure in that folder
Thanks

antalves,

the problem is that you are using the image from an NTFS partition. These partitions do not get mounted until and unless you try to access them.

So, if you have the image in your home, this will work as home will be mounted and the image will be accessible after restart.

Yes, I agree. But I insist to emphasized at instructions manual, the
necessity of having the figure in that folder
Thanks again

Found a duplicate that pinpoints the same issue -- preserving the desktop wallpaper when the original image becomes unavailable.
