I am running Ubuntu-MATE 18.04.4. "Backgrounds and Emblems" in Caja 1.20.2 (the default Caja version that came with the 18.04.4 installation) works ONLY in "Icon View" and "Compact View" and does nothing in "List View" -- the view-type I've always used.
This is quite a bummer. I grabbed Caja 1.24.0 but ./configure tells me I need 8 different dependencies (which I would also have to compile) in order to build it. I see here that this has been a problem in Caja since at least April of 2015 -- five years ago?
Surely there is a fix for this. Does anyone here know what it would be?
