Removing KDE wallpapers

Post by msdobrescu » Fri Mar 29, 2013 17:58

Hello,

Each distro seems to have a collection of wallpapers selected and deployed with KDE.
How could I remove some wallpapers of these?

Thamk you.

Open a terminal. Become root. Type the command:
#locate wallp
(no need for the rest of the word, or a trailing "*"
You will get a lot of output but you will be able to find the path to the wallpapers. Use the cd command to go to those folders and rm the images that you do not want.
At the root prompt, type:
# exit
to leave your root session.

Easy.

Is there a way to configure it to skip some (putting them out of hte list)?
I think there might a configuration as long as it could find the ones having the right screen resolution, without cropping them. This could be in some config file...

It's in the mlocate package in case it is not installed. After installing run updatedb as root to generate the database.
