I was not aware that this SlackBuild existed. Now that I do, I do find it useful. Thank you for showing me!

I don't, but then I never change my backgrounds, because the only time you see my desktop is after a fresh boot. I always have windows open on both monitors, so the desktop is always hidden.

Pretty nifty but I usually run space images from Hubble etc. Nice to have even if not for everyone.

I prefer pictures of scenery or sights (sights as in "sight-seeing"), as opposed to geeky stuff, so no, but that's must a matter of taste.

But I appreciate that someone went to the effort to create this.

Many thanks to the folks who made the wallpapers available. I don't use them, but, I'm happy they're there for other people.

Didn't know there was a SlackBuild for this. Can not remember the last time I changed my wallpaper though.

Yes, I use about 25 of those images as random backgrounds for my XDM login screen.

@solarfields

Are you he maintainer and just wanting to take it out of your dropbox, or are you wanting to abandon it?

If you just want somewhere to put the archive, I can put it in my dropbox and leave it there.

Or if you want someone to take it over, I can do that as well. I don't have a website or blog yet, so I wouldn't be able to promote it that way. But I would rather have it in SBo than lose it.

The wallpapers are fine, but I do not use the slackbuilds. I just download the wallpapers and extract them to my /home directory.

Like others, i didn't know of this package. But i tend not to bother with wallpapers as system packages. I did check out the link in the slackbuilds page though and it looks like a good source of slackware related wallpapers.

Skaendo,

yes, I am the maintainer of it. I am not looking to abandon it, just seeing some of the wallpapers in the "This is my Slackware desktop" thread made me curious. I think it needs some major clean-up, many images are bad quality, or are in a resolution too low for today's screens. Others are plain ugly.
