I use Lubuntu 15.10 (upgraded from 15.04).

Because some reason, I don't have the wallpaper, or background, folders to the desktop, now. There is no any folder with that names on my PC.

How can I recover it?

It is intended to change the "new" ugly Lubuntu default wallpaper (something like a crystal edges mosaic, or a broken glass).

If it isn't possible... How can I change it?

From where can I get free wallpapers to Lubuntu?

  • do you want to change the wallpaper in Lubuntu or do you want to know where the default location where Lubuntu stores wallpapers.

If you want to add back the defualt wallpapers from 15.04 or a previous lubuntu release you can install the lubuntu artwork 15-04 wallpapers Then set this wallpaper set back an acceptable wallpaper from this. OR you could even choose other wallpapers of a previous flavor or release. You can select prefrences desktop settings and choose the file in the filesystem. If you do not know where this is stored you can run dpkg -L in a termnial to list the files and look for something ending in .png.
