About wallpaper in KDE... just an experiment

few days back with lotts of effory i selected few gud wallpapers for my KDE (RHL9.0)... but then somehow i changed the directory path of my Pictures and that made all the wallpapers invisible to my KDE.... so just thot that can i somehow access the file from which the KDE reads the file locations and the alter it to new directory location.

in KDE, certain directories are hidden..........
they have a "." in front of them...(/.wallpapers) might have hidden the wallpapers dir by just un-hide it by removing the "."(period)

thanks for ur reply... but the wallpaper directory is there n the prob is not with that, i have selected few wallpaers which are from different , my own created, directories and now somehow i had to change the path of few directories and the KDE couldnt find the path of files (wallpaper) selected by me.............. Now i want to have direct access to the file in which KDE stores info abt all the paths of wallpapers, so that i can set it to new directory keeping the file name same.

This is where KDE stores the wallpaper location but you can use whatever path you want and just move all your wallpaper in that directory...
