Dual Display Wallpaper Disappearing issue

    Windows 8.1 Pro 64-Bit, Ubuntu 13.04 64-Bit

    My laptop HDMI'd into an HDTV has this same problem. I use "show on monitor 2" setting (or what they used to call projection mode, where ONLY the HDTV displays content). Any time I unplug the HDMI or the power goes out and the HDTV turns off, the laptop switches to its own display. Any time this occurs, my wallpaper goes black. Also happens again when the HDTV is reconnected and the screen switches back to it.

    If I right click desktop and pick 'next desktop wallpaper', the wallpaper does return, but it resets back at the first wallpaper in the list instead of remembering where it left off.

    also verify that none of the pictures are corrupt.

    I had that problem. I download wallpapers regularly from InterfaceLift. But once I download them, I didn't bother to check them. Once I found out certain images weren't loading, I noticed they didn't have proper thumbnails (just the generic cartoon picture frame) and they wouldn't load in Photoshop.
