Question Where do I save shared wallpaper files?


If I download a new desktop wallpaper, where should I save it so that every user of the computer can access the file?

It seems that when I save it to home/glenn/download that my kids cannot access that file to use for their wallpaper. Do I really have to download the file once for each user?

Thanks

on Fedora

/usr/local/share/wallpapers

I think or maybe

/usr/local/share/backgrounds

Have a look around there or do a find for a directory called wallpepers
