@bbglop whats the actual path you are using. Also how are you adding the resource. You should add it by the side bar in the Applet. And if you change it you may need to overwrite the original or write out a new copy

The two answers below mine and @adayzdone both give you good examples on how to find paths. But when thinking about distributing an app ( and I understand this maybe only for your macs) you need to thing about the whole path of resources like this and not just the User Name. People can choose to store the app anywhere other than what you have hard coded.

There is nothing wrong with your code :-) but for distributing the app this makes it difficult

Although the OP did not mention anything about placement of the app. This does assume that on the other macs the app will always be on the Desktop

comment How to move automator “Folder actions” workflow to desired folder?
Many of the locations may need to be found to move the workflows out of those locations so they are no longer picked up by the system. This also demonstrates that if the workflows are not in those locations then they will not be triggered or recognised

My main mac is on Yosemite. And with a slight change just to get the posix path on a 10.6 mac with two displays I get both desktops displaying the same image. I think you must have something in the desktop sys prefs running also.

It does do what you want on my screens both have the same image. The script can only do that did you turn of the settings in system prefs. ?
