    Classic Xubuntu Desktop Background

    Hello,

    Really enjoying Xubuntu with Xfce desktop. I did an upgrade today and lost the old classic desktop background--narrow blue and grey horizontal stripes with the xfce mouse in the center? Does anyone know where I can find it? I've Googled it pretty thoroughly to no avail.

    Thanks in Advance,

    mn

    Obviously, I should've named this thread 'Classic Xfce Desktop Background' (rather than 'Xubuntu')--sorry for the confusion.

    Mouse in center, but no stripes:

    /usr/share/backgrounds/xfce/xfce-blue.jpg

    If I run across it, I will post again.

    You might try here. Don't know if they have the one you are
    looking for but they have a lot.

    Sorry, I don't recall--but I was upgrading to xfce4.10 in order to satisfy dependencies for xfce4-weather-plugin 0.8.3, which won't work without the upgrade.

    Re: Classic Xubuntu Desktop Background

    so you just added a ppa? what version of xubuntu are you using
    this command will tell you: lsb_release -d

    Maybe if you temporarily disable the PPA you added, then

    sudo apt-get xfce4-artwork

    you'll find it in the old xfce4.8 artwork.
