New Oneiric Wallpaper Blues

Within the past week or so, i have upgraded to Oneiric Ocelot Beta 2. 

The new artwork for Oneiric appeared yesterday. It pleases some people, I am sure. I, on the other hand, was not able to find a single wallpaper I was really happy with. If you are like me, the easiest thing to do is to click on Ubuntu Software Center (the side button) and type “wallpaper” (without the quotes) into the search box.

You should find plenty of alternatives, such as ubuntu-wallpapers-extra and blubuntu-wallpapers. I am using Blubuntu for right now, as I try to find something even better. (I definitely have a weakness for blue.)

Other places you might want to try for wallpapers is Gnome-Look.org, or www.ubuntuwallpapers.com. (There are others – Google is very helpful.) With these, all you have to do is to download them ihto your Pictures folder, and then just make sure in Appearances (right-click on the desktop), you have the selection on the top left changed from Wallpaper to Pictures Folder.

Please note: Oneiric Beta 2 is crash-happy. This should be resolved before the final version is released, so I won’t worry you, except to remark that they really mean not to put this on production machines. 😉

    Currently it appears like Drupal is the preferred blogging platform available right
    now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you’re using on your blog?
