Location of the default "backgrounds" folder in DSL?


Trying to remaster DSL, but after un-clooping the image there is no backgrounds folder in /usr/share and the link in /usr/fluxbox/backgrounds to a "/usr/share/.backgrounds" folder is broken..?
How do I find the backgrounds folder-I've looked everywhere...?

Have you tried ~/.fluxbox/backgrounds?

OK-thanks-first what is the "." "/.fluxbox" mean?
Anyway, in usr/share/flubox is a link to "/opt/.backgrounds" but the link is broken and there is no "backgrounds" in "/opt" so what's up?
Can I make a "backgrounds" folder under opt/ and the link will "fix-itself" when I re-create the iso?
Where is the folder containing the backgrounds on the CD?

The "~" sign means your home directory. The dot in front of fluxbox means it is hidden. go to your home directory and do a ls -las.
