I recently downloaded some 400 wallpapers for my background. I downloaded them into my Downloads folder. From there, I copied them via the terminal to my /usr/share/backgrounds/ folder using
Then when I went to select my backgrounds via the change background option under desktop options, none of them were there. So I figured a restart would update the backgrounds list (if there is one) ..... but that didn't work. So I just used the 'add' button on the background selector window and added my /usr/share/backgrounds/ images from that location. They are now in the background list but I was wondering......
sudo cp ~/Downloads/* /user/share/backgrounds/
Is there a better way to have the backgrounds list (if there really is one. maybe it is a database of some sorts) update/refresh to include the newly added backgrounds in the folder?
I am afraid that I might have duplicates being that I selected ALL of the images in that folder, and some of them already exsisted previously.
Any ideas? Thanks in advance!!
P.S. the only files/directories in my Downloads folder were the background images.
