Description

As a user, I would like to set a wallpaper and keep this wallpaper whenever I boot with a persistence volume enabled. The blue colour background might give away i'm using Tails.

It doesn't have a clean UI to do, but you can persist dotfiles and copy and amend to the default .xsessionrc file in your $HOME:

From the terminal, this will show you all possible background settings:

```
gsettings list-recursively org.gnome.desktop.background
```

And you can add things like this to your file:

```
  1. ^^^ existing lines above

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.background primary-color "#505050"
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.background picture-options "centered"
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.background picture-uri "file:///home/amnesia/.local/share/backgrounds/some-image.png"
```

Obviously, you need to persist the background image as well. (I chose to stop it hidden in a dotfiles directory to keep my `Persistence` dir clean :)

Anyhow, hopefully that helps in the meantime!

Cool. A solution that doesn't require to fork one of the Tails-delivered files would be more robust, though.
