lxde lubuntu 10.04 where is default wallpaper?

I was playing around with some jpegs on the desktop using the Desktop settings. I lost the path to the default wallpaper.

I have checked /usr/share/backgrounds and /user/share/wallpapers. There is nothing in those two folders.

If I know the path I can restore it. I need to know the default path to the default wallpaper. I have a black background for wallpaper now.

P.S. I've googled it. Edit: not enough /usr/share/lubuntu/wallpapers

Thought I would post this so you would not be on the "unanswered" list.

Had this same problem myself about a year ago when trying Lubuntu. I found the buggers because, at that time at least, the path was listed on the desktop menu. Haven't really looked at it seriously since. Have too many things on here as it is.

Lubuntu is, I think, the best the Ubuntu "family" has to offer.

or usr/share/lxde/wallpapers
Once you know to look under /usr/share, you'll find something
