I have no clue what happened, but the desktop background picture has

the problem.  The salient information is: OS is fully updated Testing,
MATE desktop environment.  I have attempted to re-set the desktop
background via both system settings and via right-click->set desktop
background on the desktop to no effect.  Thinking that probably the
issue was associated with my normal login (the only one on the system),
I created a new user from root terminal and logged in with newly created
skeleton home folder; the problem persisted with the new user, so it is
a system-wide issue.  Past that, I have no clue.  Any ideas/help will be
greatly appreciated.  Thanks in advance.

I've been having problems with Xfce wallpaper on Debian 8.8 for a month
or more.  It broke after an apt-get update/ apt-get upgrade.  I filed a
bug report, received one reply, tried the suggestions to no avail, and
replied.  I'm still waiting for a response:


David if it makes any difference, recently Debian installed a Debian Stretch Theme and the Next wallpaper or the wallpaper you where using could have been changed or I should say probably did get changed, I run testing and Sid so I'm used to many themes being wiped out and replaced, it's the way of testing and not something you would expect from a stable system which Stretch is not, yet. As I told Cindy, you can find the installed wallpaper in /usr/share/wallpaper.
