[Bug 1550680] Re: Setting org.gnome.desktop.background show-desktop-icons to false removes wallpaper


Workaround: Create the following script:

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.background show-desktop-icons true
sleep 2
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.background show-desktop-icons false

Explanation: The first line shows both wallpaper and icons. The second
line waits until wallpaper is fully loaded. Inserting 1 second here is
not enough and either value will not affect system's booting time. Third
line hides the icons, but not the wallpaper.

Open "Startup Applications" by typing the program's name in the launcher
and run the script from there.
