    Can someone give me the Ubuntu 20.04 Focal Fossa WALLPAPER?

    Today I upgraded to Hirsute Hippo, but I would really like the Focal Fossa wallpaper file (default focal fossa on purple background). Any images I can find online are not hi-res images. I didn't realise that the files do reside on the computer, and I could have saved it myself before I upgraded. Could someone give me the file?

    Perhaps you can find it in a 20.04 LiveUSB lying around?

    How would they do that? Any image uploaded to the forum would be resolution downgraded. But don't despair! A simple terminal command should get you the whole set:

    Code:
    sudo apt install ubuntu-wallpapers-focal
    Adapt the command as necessary for any other release.

    Edit: Oops. That might not work. For some reason I have never been able to fathom, the default wallpaper for each release has the filename warty-final-ubuntu.png, so I'm not sure what will happen when you run that command in Hirsute. But there is another way.

    Download this file (click on the link): http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/poo...buntu1_all.deb

    Then extract the deb. Then extract data.tar.xz inside the extracted deb. Then navigate to usr/share/backgrounds inside the data folder and you'll find the full 4096x2304 warty-final-ubuntu.png file with the focal image you want.

    That would work I'm sure, thanks for the tip!

    Thanks, I tried the first step and realised it was missing, and then did the second!
