Re the wallpaper competition for Lubuntu 15.04 in The Lubuntu Blog, can I download one in Lubuntu 14.04/

Actually just install the ubuntu wallpapers

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-wallpapers-version-of-ubuntu-here

Then symlink it into Lubuntu Wallpapers directory

sudo ln -s /usr/share/backgrounds /usr/share/lubuntu/wallpapers/community-wallpapers

Now you should see a community-wallpapers directory when choosing images.



I don't see why not. You'll need sudo to put the image into /usr/share/lubuntu/wallpapers. But that's about it. Then you should see the new wallpaper as a choice when you next open Customize Look and Feel in Menu > Preferences.

  • Do I enter 'sudo' first then '/usr/share/lubuntu/wallpapers' ? The response to this is 'Is a directory' Jun 24, 2015 at 23:17
