I have currently installed 12.04 and I really like the wallpapers of 11.10. How do I install it in 12.04?

You can install the wallpapers of the 13.10 by running this command in a terminal:

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-wallpapers-saucy

or using Software Center Install via the software center

For other older Ubuntu versions, replace saucy with

  • raring for 13.04
  • quantal for 12.10
  • precise for 12.04
  • oneiric for 11.10
  • natty for 11.04,
  • maverick for 10.10,
  • lucid for 10.04,
  • karmic for 9.10,

Wallpapers for Ubuntu version 6.10, 7.04 and 7.10 also available. To Install edgy wallpapers use this command:

sudo apt-get install edgy-wallpapers

for feisty (1.04) and gutsy (7.10) replace edgy-wallpapers with feisty-wallpapers and gutsy-wallpapers respectively.

For convenience for users looking to download ALL the wallpapers:

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-wallpapers-* edgy-wallpapers feisty-wallpapers gutsy-wallpapers
