How can I install the default Gnome-Shell 3.4 animated background (or 'wallpaper') in Ubuntu 12.10?

The background is dynamic, becoming brighter and more radiant during the day, and dark and shadowy in the evening.

I tried to install the package "gnome-backgrounds" but there are only the static backgrounds.


The background is part of the default gnome theme 'Adwaita'. You have to install the package gnome-themes-standard.

gnome-themes-standard Install gnome-themes-standard

  • Thanks! Unfortunately,in the latest version of gnome this theme is much lighter and brighter. However I created an archive containing the theme of version 3.4. – Roberto Leinardi Nov 18 '12 at 12:54
  • the archive mentioned by @RobertoLeinardi seems down (404). IS there any other source available to get this good wallpaper for i.e. 16.04 – dufte Jun 7 '17 at 8:30
