Maybe add some more desktop backgrounds?

Thu Jan 11, 2018 3:28 am

More (or different) desktop backgrounds would be awesome, as the default ones that come with Solus GNOME (idk about budgie) are kind of lacking. Maybe add some contemporary ones other than that weird triangle one?

You can add as many wallpapers as you want. An dyou will find lot of them made by the community in the Artwork / Style section of the forum.
You can also search in the Software center for apps like Variety.
Storing many wallpapers would increase the size of the ISO's and use disk space on the hard drive.

Would it be possible to replace any of them to create more variety? Right now it is mostly pictures of water and various objects. Im more complaining about how similar the photos are, since they all seem to be on the same "aesthetic." A little variety wouldn't hurt would it?

I am sorry, but does it really matter what wallpapers are included with Solus, when you can choose any wallpaper you like ?

You can right click any picture you want, and choose "Set as Wallpaper".

This is a nice site to get wallpapers: https://www.opendesktop.org/browse/cat/298/

Another nice site: https://interfacelift.com/wallpaper/downloads/date/any

antechdesigns have shared a lot of wallpapers here: viewtopic.php?f=22&t=9184

Others have shared wallpapers here: viewforum.php?f=22

You are free to do whatever you want, knock yourself out. :)

I know how to swap to non default wallpapers, I just think it would be nice to have more variety. It is just a minor tweak.
