Having installed P5 on this laptop for a friend (which is working great) I decided to save a nice picture of North Yorkshire as wallpaper (saved to desktop)
which worked fine but left a thumbnail image on the desktop as well, which I duly sent to the trash! Unfortunately, in so doing, the wallpaper picture of N Yorks.
also disappeared and so did the original Peppermint wallpaper that was there after first install.
How can I get it back and how can I put a new wallpaper on, which doesn’t leave a thumbnail sized image also on the desktop and am also able to
reinstate the original Peppermint Wallpaper as and when I want to?
It sounds like the thumbnail image was the image file source for the wallpaper so when you trashed the thumbnail you trashed the wallpaper, I keep a folder called “Wallpapers” in my /home/pictures folder and keep all my wallpapers there ( I change a lot) alternatively you could place them in /usr/share/peppermint/wallpapers but you would have to do that as root.
You should still be able to retrieve your picture from the trash folder and try again, if you want the default wallpaper right click anywhere on the desktop select desktop preferences and navigate to /usr/share/peppermint/wallpapers it will be in there
