Where do I put my own wallpapers? SOLVED

Post by freshtamatic »

I'd like to add my own wallpapers in the wallpaper section, but I have no idea where it is located.
Could someone provide the path?
TIA.

Put it anywhere you like. Then in desktop background just select the folder where you out them.

The system installed wallpapers are in /usr/share/backgrounds with a config file related to each installed set in /usr/share/cinnamon-background-properties/

But you shouldn't really add personal wallpapers here. Make yourself a wallpaper folder, copy or symlink your personal wallpapers into it and add that folder via the backgrounds app.

If you do add your own wallpapers here you also need to create the config file for your personal set.
For custom Nemo actions, useful scripts for the Cinnamon desktop, and Cinnamox themes visit my Github pages.
