When I upgraded to Mountain Lion a while back, I can never keep the wallpaper personal folder in my preferences to stay. It worked perfectly in Lion, but breaks everytime I leave System Preferences.

 

To be clear, the default wallpapers from Apple and my Aperture libraries come up perfectly each time. I am talking about when I add a folder that I store my own wallpapers in. The folder disappears each time I close system preferences.

 

Any ideas why? Running 10.8.2, but had the problem since 10.8.


Mac Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2), (Nehalem)

    I have this problem since ML first came out. It's definitely a bug and there is nothing we can do until the bug is sorted out by Apple.

    Looks like 10.8.3 fixed it.

    Thanks to all of you.  I've been mystified.  If I could add something to the conversation, I'm running Lion 10.7.5, not Mountain Lion.  So, the bug isn't in Mountain Lion.  It started for me 1-2 months ago and continues.  I really appreciate your information.

    WORKAROUND:

    Hey All.  I too am having this issue on my Macbook Pro with a clean install of Mountain Lion.  I did not back up from time machine or import settings from any other backup.  So when I say clean, I mean clean.  And yet, when I add a folder to Desktop settings, it disappears once I close out of preferences.  The work around was to import my pictures into Iphoto and choose a picture from there in desktop preferences.  That seems to be the workaround and it will keep the picture you chose in between bootups.  Hope that helps for now...COME ON APPLE!!!!
