View Full Version : [SOLVED] Cannot use or view ubuntu wallpaper in kubuntu

May 14th, 2012, 11:53 AM
I like the default 12.04 wallpaper and fancied using it in kubuntu but found I cannot use it.
I mounted the ubuntu partition and browsed to it and noticed then that there was no thumbnail preview for that wallpaper but there was for all the others.

I copied it over and went to set it as wallpaper but just get a black screen.
Tried opening it in the image view and it said the image cannot be loaded.

So I went into ubuntu and it was there as normal so I tried copying it to a shared partition but again, as soon as I booted kubuntu I cannot do anything.

Of course, I can just google it and download but I would like to know why it isn't viewable in kubuntu.

Weird enough, the "warty-final-ubuntu" wallpaper is used to be a JPG image with the actual file extension being "png" - for whatever reason. #-o Just change its extension to "jpg" and you should be fine. :D
