How to get the Gloria-Desktop-Wallpaper? [SOLVED]

Post by morris »

I really fell in love at first sight with that desktop: http://blog.linuxmint.com/?p=847

Gloria isn't supported anymore, so chances are, that I will have to install any other version that comes with support and will work with my comp. Still I would be so happy if I could get that fine green wallpaper with the soft and fresh colour and those nice raindrops as a background with any other version of Mint that happens to work with my hardware.

Does anyone know where I could get it?

And, just in case, if I create my own nice green wallpaper, where could I post that, so that other users might have it too?

The Gloria-Desktop default wallpaper is call "Mint Dew"

I Google everything, all you need is to use the tools to work for you & know of a good keyword.

Go to Google on the top left you will see a link to images. Click on images. This will look for images only, good thing to know.

Now use a good keyword. How about "Linux Mint Dew Wallpaper"

There you go. If you learn how a search engine really works. You can use it to your advantage, to find anything you are searching for.
