backup my slackware themes


I downloaded several slackware themes and I also have a background picture that I want to backup, where would these be located on a standard slackware kde install.

Look in your Downloads directory and also look in /usr/share/backgrounds/
/usr/share/wallpapers/

If you got them via the KDE theming dialogues ('get new themes' or something), you'll find them in '.kde/share/apps/desktopthemes'. Wallpapers will be somewhere similar.

Your Welcome-

It can be a tad confusing until you look at the diagram in the link provided.
For convenience, the Linux file system is usually thought of in a tree structure.

You'll be glad you did and things will make more sense.

The more you learn about your Linux distribution the less intimidating things will be.

If your using the Live Version of Gparted your only mounted to that particular partition long enough to modify it. As soon and you make the changes to the partition click apply changes.

Gparted will automatically mount (while you are working on the partition) and unmount (when you apply the changes) that partition for you.
