Question: Where are the plasma desktop wallpapers saved in KDE? There is a wallpaper in 11.04 that isn't in 11.10 that I would like to save. I have 11.04 on my desktop but on my laptop is 11.10 and I would like to have the same wallpaper, the chess one, but I don't know where the files are saved and not sure what to type into google to search for that. I'm sure someone here will know pretty quick, I appreciate the help.

In Fedora my wallpapers are in /usr/share/wallpapers/ , these are the wallpapers that you get when installing, and some that you would download from kde-look.org. Wallpapers are also kept in your /home folder in a hidden .kde folder, like mine here:
/home/GoinEasy9/.kde/share/wallpapers/
I've noticed that these are wallpapers that also come from kde-look.org (I guess it depends on how they're set up to install). The wallpapers here are also the custom ones that I save and work on. Since they're in your /home folder, they belong to your user name.
