Where can I download the default wallpaper of Ubuntu 13.04 from an official source?

I can download all the other wallpapers that come along with it by either going to Launchpad or installing the package "ubuntu-wallpapers-raring".

But the default one seems to impossible to get a hold of (from the official Ubuntu website(s)).

Nope, the default wallpaper is nowhere to be found on that page. –  tigerearwax Jun 16 '13 at 18:08

No, you can't get it officially, but OMG! Ubuntu! is pretty close.

Having posted the above, I can't seem to download it (at least, not in Firefox 22, Nightly (25) or Chrome)... –  Ads20000 Jul 23 '13 at 20:32

The Ubuntu wallpapers from older releases can be installed from the Software Center, but I guess you want the 13.04 wallpapers and have installed an earlier Ubuntu release (perhaps 12.04 LTS?).

Well, simply go to http://packages.ubuntu.com/raring/ubuntu-wallpapers and, from the right-hand panel, select the link [ubuntu-wallpapers_13.04.0daily13.03.20.orig.tar.gz] under "Download Source Package ubuntu-wallpapers:".

This will download a 26MiB file containing all wallpapers from release 9.10 to date, including the default wallpaper under the name warty-final-ubuntu.png. Note that this seems to be a .jpg file with .png extension.

You can install old Ubuntu wallpapers using installing the ubuntu-wallpapers-(version) package. For example, if you use the terminal, you can type sudo apt-get install ubuntu-wallpapers-raring, to get Ubuntu Raring's wall papers.
