10.4: Quickly set desktop image using Safari 3
Authored by: ddixon752 on Oct 21, '08 12:23:20PM

OK, now - is there a way to disable this? I manage three labs in a school. Our IT folks won't let us use Managed Client so as an alternative we use Parental Controls to keep students from getting into System Prefs, etc. However, they've discovered this trick and keep setting our desktop patterns to other pictures. So can this be turned off? Failing that, is there a way to reset the desktop pattern to the default upon login??? Automator, maybe???

write-protect the file ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.desktop.plist and changing the desktop isn't possible anymore.
