Thread: Leap 42.2 Gnome - no wallpapers

  1. #1

    Question Leap 42.2 Gnome - no wallpapers

    I'm an absolute noob, I can't figure out where are the wallpapers and how to change the default one, if any other background exists? From the tweak tool I can just select the default picture or a color. Where are all those beautiful chameleon wallpapers I see everywhere by googling?

    of course it's Leap, not Lap

    Hi and welcome to the forums
    Right click on the desktop Else via settings Background and then click on the background you want to change either Background or Lock Screen.

    You can add your wallpapers into you ~/Pictures directory as well to select those.

    Hi malcolmlewis, thank you.

    I had already tried it (right click - background) but was expecting to see more wallpapers there than a single default one, like in any other distros/os. So I asked to see if something went wrong with the installation.

    ps. where I can find official wallpapers from opensuse developers or community?

    Hi
    Nope, nothing wrong that's just the default one... use zypper or YaST software to search on wallpaper, there is also https://en.opensuse.org/Portal:Artwork (See the Wallpapers link) and git repository links.

    I normally use KDE, but Gnome is installed.

    So I right-clicked on desktop, and selected "background".

    As you say, it showed only one (default background) and one for lock screen.

    I clicked on the default background image, and it showed me a bunch of possibilities. I selected one of those.

    As for where: I had already searched for "wallpaper" in Yast Software Management, and installed several packages of wall paper. I have installed:
    breeze5-wallpapers (part of KDE, I think, but should work in Gnome)
    desktop-data-openSUSE-extra
    gos-wallpapers (good old suse wallpapers)
    plasma5-workspace-wallpapers (additional KDE wallpapers, but should work in Gnome)
    ubuntu-mate-wallpapers
    wallpaper-branding-openSUSE (should already be installed).
    openSUSE Leap 15.1; KDE Plasma 5;
    testing Leap 15.2Alpha
