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?

Thanks!

If I remember correctly, you should be able to add an entry in the registry that shows the path to the desktop image.
But I guess it depends on if you set Windows as XP, 7, 8, Vista, etc.

Here is the registry information: Wallpaper
Chances are you will need to save the image as .bmp first
Then open the Windows Registry with Wine
Go to: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System]
Look for Wallpaper
Edit the path to your .bmp
I recommend putt it in Drive_C just to make it simple

Let me know if it works or breaks something
