Where to get default Mint 13 desktop wallpaper?

Postby SunWorks » Thu Jun 07, 2012 10:07 pm

hello,
Strange request, but I would appreciate some help.
Am fixing my nephew's Win7 laptop and want to put the standard Mint 13 Maya wallpaper as his wallpaper in Win7.

I know I know... it raises all sorts of questions, jokes, etc... but he also has a desktop running MInt so he's not a Win-a-holic.

I just want to surprise him and make him look twice.

Display is 1920 x 1200

I don't want any modified wallpaper... just the stock Linux Mint Maya that pops up when I do a Live DVD session.

I cannot find it on the disk and have looks all over here..

So I would *appreciate* somebody telling me where it is!

Thank you,
Clinton

You can get it from here:

Code: Select all

/usr/share/backgrounds/linuxmint-maya

gelsan_green.png is the name of the default wallpaper

Just copy and paste it where you like.

Perfect. I appreciate the quick and accurate response.
I must admit, with your help, this is now the best looking desktop I've EVER seen on a Windows 7 machine! :lol:

Best regards,
Clinton
