Post where to put wallpapers so its common to all users..

(bit of a newbie question) im running mandrake 9.0 w/ Windows Maker and i want a place to put wallpapers that would be common to all users so that windowmaker notices them, instead of putting them into each users " ~/GNUstep/Library/WindowMaker/Backgrounds " directory.

Well, you could create a common directory to place them in and instead of putting them in each users home directory, just create a link to the common place you've setup for it..
