Bionic wallpapers - DONE
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Some options for wallpapers in Bionic that occur to me.

  • Hold another competition
  • Get some fresh custom artwork done
  • Go back in time and choose a selection of the best KDE/Plasma wallpapers from the past
  • Just go back to shipping the default Plasma wallpaper and leave it at that

Oh gosh another competition. Please no. On the other hand, it would be cool if people felt so inclined that they could contribute wallpapers with the proper licensing. That could perhaps be done through with a tag of Kubuntu?

Best KDE/Plasma wallpapers from the past would be a very cool package on its own! "Classic KDE" or so.

The wallpaper right now is *great*. I hope we do continue to ship the default.

Any further suggestions? I will have a look back at past wallpaper sources to see is there are any nice candidates.

IMO, the default wallpaper in 5.11 is really good. But, it also would be great to have elarun wallpaper from oxygen. Folder View with elarun wallpaper and folders from breeze icon theme looks great.

Make sure you don't leave Marble Beach out.

@ragreen thanks for the suggestion. I was really trying to keep this selection small, and focused mostly on some classic non-photo type KDE wallpapers, that had been in KDE, but are not longer. Also makes copyright easier, as that job was done years ago for those.

So are we ok to go with this, as an initial upload anyway?

+1, ship it!

Done, uploaded, and now in today's daily iso.
