Maybe I'm not doing this right, but the images I'm getting are too small to use as full screen' wallpaper. They'd barely cover at 800x600. Pretty, but suitable for wallpaper?
They are just images - I don't use Linux much, but I would think they would work as wallpaper. Someone with Linux experience correct me if I am wrong.
It is located just underneath the image you get on the website. I tried to pick images with resolutions over 1024 x 768.
Depending upon what window manager you're running, there are various ways to do this: * For kde3 or kde4 use the KDE Control Center or System Settings Other window managers such as LXDE or IceWM have similar capabilities. * Various image editors, as well as the "display" command line tool, allow you to set an image as your wallpaper. E.g., display -window root -resize * For window managers that follow standard usage, put a line causing the image to be displayed into your .xinitrc file. * For Gnome or Unity, who knows ?
The first one is on the small side, and i jumped to the conclusion that they were all the same dimensions.
Easy - just right-click on whatever image you wish, and select [Set as wallpaper]... Whether it stretches, zooms, tiles or centres (etc) is taken from previous settings, and can be changed anytime by right clicking on your desktop and choosing [Change desktop background] - which also allows you to set other pix and so on. Not a major task! Freebird54
