Wallpaper / Screensaver


How do you go about loading an image to either KDE or Gnome to support a different wallpaper / screensave / boot-up theme, etc etc.
Thanks in advance , -E

In KDE, right click the desktop and press configure desktop.
It should be pretty self-explanetory from there

Thank You...... but I was wondering how to input new wallpaper/screensavers into Linux. I am on Red Hat 9 and Mandrake 9.1 and neither "theme" is much to write home about. Sooooooo, I am attempting to get a little more of a change into it. I know of a gazillion sites to get the new wallpaper/screensavers but not sure where it should reside on disk such that I can get to it from the various config panels on each of the distributions ....... -E

KDE dosen't care where your wallpapers are. You can download them to a directory you create for them and in control panel browse to the directory and simply point and click. Screensavers are small apps. Download the tarball or rpm and install. If you use the tarball there will almost certainly be a readme or install file with instuctions.
