    F28 Xfce spin: Supplemental wallpapers don't show up

    Hello,

    Today I installed supplemental wallpapers:

    Code:
    sudo dnf install f28-backgrounds-extras-xfce
    The terminal indicates that the package has been installed. However, when I look at Desktop's Background folder, I don't see any more wallpapers other than the default "lit fiber optics strands" wallpaper that comes with F28.

    Any suggestions? Thanks for your help.

    They are installed into a different directory. To access them click on Other in the Folder dropdown list. Backgrounds should be highlighted in the window that opens. Open it, the f28 and then extras. Click on open in the window and the backgrounds will appear in the desktop settings.

    At first, your suggestion didn't work because previously I had downloaded from the Internet some images into the Pictures folder. I had to use File Manager to get rid of those first, then uninstall f28-backgrounds-extras-xfce along with its dependency.

    After re-installing this file,

    Desktop settings > backgrounds > f28 > extras > open > select image

    Cheers!
