Question Copy KDE Wallpaper to GNOME

I'm using KDE Desktop and have some nice wallpapers that I have installed from KDE wallpaper setting.
I see it store in directory: /home/usr/<name>/.kde/wallpaper.

Now, I want to copy these wallpapers so I can use it on GNOME desktop. but I don't know how to go to .kde directory to copy these wallpapers.

Please help me.
Thanks

Re: Copy KDE Wallpaper to GNOME

I don't use GNOME, but you could try /usr/share/backgrounds
-edit- to go to a 'hidden' directory (one starting with a dot) you either do it from the terminal or, if you're using Dolphin, press 'Alt+.' (Alt plus dot) to show hidden directories (in nautilus you do that with 'Ctrl+h').

Re: Copy KDE Wallpaper to GNOME

@: no, /usr/share/backgrounds just have wallpapers in GNOME, not KDE.
And I use dolphin, but when I press Alt+, no happen. ! In Dolphin, there is an option that show hidden file, but not show hidden folder, so I cannot see .kde folder.
Please help me how to solve this. (or just tell me how to take wallpapers here). I think this work seems easy, but I cannot find on Google

Thanks

Re: Copy KDE Wallpaper to GNOME

It's alt + dot, not comma.
It should show both hidden files and hidden folders, AFAIK.

If you want to copy them with the terminal, open konsole and go to where you want to copy them to. Suppose its ~/Pictures:
Code:
$ cd ~/Pictures
Then copy the images there:
Code:
$ cp ~/.kde/wallpaper/* .

Re: Copy KDE Wallpaper to GNOME

As far as I can tell, the default wallpapers for GNOME are all in /usr/share/backgrounds, as mentioned above. I'm not sure if there is an equivalent directory for users' personal backgrounds (I tried ~/.local/share/backgrounds but that didn't work).

However, GNOME doesn't need backgrounds to be in a particular location. My first screen-shot shows how to access images from the standard Pictures folder or any arbitrary location, so maybe ~/Pictures/Backgrounds would be a good place for your backgrounds. The second screen-shot shows the corresponding GSettings key in dconf-editor, showing that my current background image is in a fairly arbitrary location.
