The title says it all - if anyone could point me to the default
red hat 6 desktop wallpapers, or the name of the rpm-package
containing them, it'd be much appreciated. I don't want to
download the whole distro just to extract some jpgs.. :|
In particular, I'd be interested in the wallpaper pictured here:

Thanks!

Seems to me that the desktop posted is of a high enough resolution that you could edit it in GIMP to make wallpaper.

I liked it, couldn't find it either, so i did just that harryc...

http://conradshome.com/images/default.png

it's from a 1680x1050 shot like the above one.

for future reference... the backgrounds are in:

desktop-backgrounds-x.x.x-x.noarch.rpm (seem to be only tiles in the propaganda directory)
desktop-backgrounds-basic-x.x-x.noarch.rpm (just one default and several "space" themed images)
desktop-backgrounds-extra-x.x-x.noarch.rpm (this is where the most variety seems to be)

with x's being version numbers... I went through like 50 different versions of those rpm's and still didn't find this specific wallpaper :P

P.S. 7zip extracts RPM files (which contain .cpio archives, that 7zip can also extract) for anyone else who might need to do the same :)

I went thru those, gnome, kde, and any other ones I thought an image would be in, browsed deviant art for a couple hours... I mean I really don't think it exists on the net as a clean wallpaper :P

It kinda hurt my ego that I couldn't find it... I consider myself a quite good digger :P
