In desktop intergration, I saw there was an option to change the background to another solid color. Is there any way to use your own image as the background?

Sure is, I'll have to try it as well.

  1. Set the virtual desktop size first.  ex:  1024x768
  2. Create a desktop image the exact same size.  ex:  1024x768
  3. Save it as a bitmap:  wallpaper.bmp
  4. Save it in the Windows Folder: /home/username/.PlayOnLinux/wineprefix/game/drive_c/windows
    Note:  Use your login in place of "username"
  5. Navigate to:
    /home/username/.PlayOnLinux/wineprefix/game/drive_c/windows
  6. Open win.ini with gedit
  7. Add this entry:
    [code][desktop]
    Wallpaper=c:\windows\wallpaper.bmp[/code]

  8. Save it
  9. Relaunch Wine

NICE! hahaha. I did not even think about doing that. Especially to have a custom background for each game, all high def and stuff. I will for sure remember this.
