Where does a new wallpaper go?

Post by RVDowning » Sat May 26, 2018 4:45 am

I did a Get New Wallpapers from Desktop Settings - Plasma Desktop Shell and installed one. But where do I go to actually find it so that I can actually select it for a desktop background?

Ah, I see I needed to close the Desktop Settings dialog and relaunch it before newly installed items would appear.
