Install Complete Fedora Wallpaper Packs (From Fedora 8 to Fedora 25)

Install Complete Fedora Wallpaper Packs

As you might already know, each Fedora release comes with a default wallpaper, and set of extra supplemental wallpapers. Also, in each Fedora release, the older wallpapers are not included by default. However, they are available in the Fedora repositories, so that you can install them on any Fedora release. If you have just installed a new Fedora desktop, and wanted to add more wallpapers, follow me.

In this brief tutorial, I will show you how to install all Fedora wallpaper packs (from Fedora 8 to 25) in any Fedora desktop.

As you see in the above commands, I have only included the commands for GNOME desktop environment. To install other desktop’s default and supplemental wallpapers, just replace the word “gnome” with your DE name. Say for example, to install the default wallpaper of Fedora 20 XFCE workstation, run:

sudo dnf install heisenbug-backgrounds-xfce

Similarly, for other DEs, use the appropriate package name as listed below.

  • GNOME – heisenbug-backgrounds-gnome
  • KDE – heisenbug-backgrounds-kde
  • Mate – heisenbug-backgrounds-mate
  • XFCE – heisenbug-backgrounds-xfce
