I couldn't find another post that answered my question, and I'm not entirely sure this is the right place to ask or not.. so my bad..
I downloaded the themes packages from Bodhi Art site (the all-in-one deal). So, I started to look at them, and I set one up for my desktop. Worked fine. But I went to change it to another theme, and the background/wallpaper will not change, but the rest of the theme does (like the windows). I'm not entirely sure what to do to fix it. I'm fairly new with the linux thing, and entirely new to the Enlightenment desktop. If anyone could tell me how to fix the themes manager so that it will work correct again, that would be lovely. And I did search around here and online. I found a post (somewhere..can't remember where though) where someone was having an issue with the theme manager. They told him to make sure that the "Use Theme Wallpaper" box was checked, and then to click on "Advanced" and "Assign" then "Apply". I tried that, didn't change anything. When I click the "Use Theme Wallpaper" thing and then Ok/Apply, it flashes the screen, but nothing happens.
I was trying to find the folder where the Bodhi wallpapers are stored, and just manually 'set' them myself. But I have no idea where they are hiding. Google didn't help out with that problem either. Answering either of those would do wonders in helping me :/ It's hard to learn python and more about linux with a mis-matched background glaring at you.
Edit: also, when I'm in the theme manager, no matter what theme I select, in the wallpaper selection, it always shows the "A-Bodhi" one..

I found if you uncheck the box marked use theme wallpaper it would let the wallpaper be changed......But I had to change it manually
I think this is an issue coz the the whole theme should change ....wallpaper and all
I will reboot with Bodhi and tell you how I did it (back soon)
This is how I did it
Left click and select .....settings and then setting panel
Then select...screen...then screen lock...then click on the right arrow to wallpaper.....then click custom ...then close
Next click on look.....system.....picture.....(to add your own pic)......click root...usr....share...background.....or open a pic with firefox then minimze firefox and select home from the setting screen....(above root)....ypur custom pic should show for you to select
Now click ok then it will ask stretch ...centre...tiled etc ....then click ok
I used this method to add the bodhi-tron wallpaper ......from the art page
This may not be the best way ....but thats how I got it to change .....If anyone has an easier way please advise
Btw my themes change wallpapers an all set this way
Hope this helps

As FredPC said, go into the theme manager, select Advanced option, and you'll see options on the left have "ticks"
Anything with a tick on it, means its been "set by the user" so you can change the theme all you like but those bits with ticks remain as the user set it. Your desktop wallpaper will have a tick on it.
If you do want to set something to be the same across the board (say a gadget for example)
Select the option you want on the left pan, then select different options in the right pan until you get the style you want, at the bottom there is 2-3 buttons, one of them says something like "select" or something similar (not at my linux pc right now)

Just from the switch themes, select another theme and then right click mousse, and select delete theme.
