Where does XFCE usually hide the wallpaper images?


I've been looking around for the location of the wallpaper image folder, as I want to add in an image of my own. I have not had much luck in finding it.

If all you want to do is change the wallpaper then you can simply right click the desktop and go to "Desktop Settings", then click the little plus sign to navigate to your own wallpaper.

The stock xfce4 wallpapers seem to be in
Code:
/usr/share/xfce4/backdrops

The wallpaper file navigator doesn't work. It's greyed out. So I was wanting to put the image in the wallpaper folder. It's been changed now. Thanks.
