I'm not infront of my laptop at the moment but I'm pretty sure you should find the wallpaper in /usr/share/xfce4/backgrounds/.

Thank you both.

@Akuna Oddly enough, I get an xfce wallpaper - horizontal grey stripes with a rat (mouse?) in the middle above the letters xfce.

@pwatk Is it the one called StairWay.png with white and pastel boxes, and no tree? sheytanbv36.png looks like the old one, or very similar.

@mimosa
you need the new user-settings-xfce package to have default salix settings for xfce with newly created users.

And yes, it's Stairway.png

Thanks gapan, that did it.

It looks nice, but I do miss the tree. :( It reminds me vaguely of Mandriva wallpaper. :lol:

Thanks to the devs a lot! It's a great release.

I used slackware 13.37, but packagemanagement, like building everything from source grew over my head (especially all the multimediapacks in order). Slackware is great, and you guys made Salix a great slackware desktop distro. I use it as my prime desktop OS.

Thank you very much. Will try to remember your advice when installing Salix 13.37 Fluxbox and/or LXDE.

That would certainly make it easier for less technically sophisticated users with one of the affected chipsets.
Fully agree!

Regards.

Dear Salix OS Team,

your latest 13.37 release is a fabulous minimalistic Linux distro based on the rock-solid Slackware base! I have installed it recently on a rather old-ish laptop and am very pleased how it works now swiftly and lightly :D

I have a few minor suggestions that I will post in the corresponding forum section, but apart from these I am very impressed and can only say:

Thank you all for the GREAT WORK!!!

Any progress?
