Desktop picture in PB? Desktop
Here's a weird one. Tonight I tried (for the first time) to change the desktop picture. In the Dock & Desktop Prefences panel, I see a blank square under the "Desktop Picture:" header. It doesn't show the current, default one. I really want to change it to a basic pattern to try and accelerate the graphic speed of the old G3 machine OS X PB is on. Is this possible or do I have to select an image, and why don't I see the current image? Also, where is that image?

The current image is a default, and it doesn't show up in the box. I'm not sure where it's stored. You should be able to create a 1024x768 (or whatever) size single-color JPEG in any graphics app, and tell the PB to use that one for the background.

In some of the later builds, there are some pre-defined single-color background images.
