I changed my Lubuntu (13.10)'s default desktop background image to an original image. However, I want to go back to the default image, but I can't find where the image is on my computer- this means I can't choose it as a background.

Where is the location of the default Lubuntu desktop image?

  • Try to look into /usr/share/backgrounds. – Danatela Apr 7 '14 at 3:27

In Lubuntu you can find default wallpapers at /usr/share/lubuntu/wallpapers.
