 * Nemo version - 3.4.7
 * Is issue with desktop or windowed nemo? Both
 * Distribution - Mint 18.2
 * Intel integrated video
 * 32 bit

When Nemo is not on English, the option "Set as Wallpaper" not working properly.
Instead to change wallpaper with selected one, Nemo set the default Linux Mint wallpaper.
My native language is Bulgarian.

Steps to reproduce
Set bulgarian locale, open Nemo select some image and try to "Set as wallpaper"

Expected behaviour
Nemo will change the wallpaper with the default Mint wallpaper... :(

Other information
My suggestion is that happen because folder names are not on english, when the photo that i want to set as wallpaper is on folder with english name, the function work properly.

I figured it out. The problem is in Nemo's "set-as-background.nemo_action". When i change the Exec to

Exec=gsettings set org.cinnamon.desktop.background picture-uri file:///'%F'

It's working just fine.
