Thread: adding wallpaper to my wallpaper folder

  1. #1

    Default adding wallpaper to my wallpaper folder

    i have 12.1 .3.1.0-1.2-desktop x86_64 kde 4.7.2 (4.7.2) "release 5". i searched for wallpaper and found 4 or 5 wallpaper folders that show up in find files and folder. it doesnt look as easy as adding a jpg or png to \windows\web\wallpaper in windows.

    opensuse seems to have jpg files in a folder and then a single jpg file outside the content folder. is it s easy as adding just a jpg or png file to the wallpaper folder? will that automatically add the photo to where i change my wallpaper in view tab desktop setting plasma desktop shell..

    which of the several wallpaper folders do i use and which is the location

    file:///home/suse/.kde4/share/apps/desktoptheme/internal-system-colors/wallpapers
    file:///usr/share/wallpapers
    file:///home/suse/.kde4/share/wallpapers
    file:///var/tmp/kdecache-suse/plasma-wallpapers/usr/share/wallpapers
    file:///home/suse/.kde4/share/apps/desktoptheme/default/wallpapers
    file:///home/suse/.kde4/share/apps/desktoptheme/internal-system-colors/wallpapers

    In KDE, right click on the desktop and select Desktop Settings. That
    allows you to change wallpaper, download new ones, set up a slideshow,
    and set folders to choose from, etc.

    If you want wallpapers to show up in the wallpaper picker dialog, add them to ~/.kde4/share/wallpapers. Took me ages to figure that out. ;-)
