I deleted some pictures that I set as wallpaper but they're still showing up in my Desktop(Applications->System Setting->Desktop). I tried looking for them to see where they are stored. I have checked:

.cache/wallpapers 

usr/share/backgrounds 

And I also disabled hidden files as well and I couldn't find them. Anyone know where they are stored?

  • have you deleted default wallpapers? – Ravan Dec 29 '15 at 6:46
  • Actually I found it. The actual elementary OS stores wallpaper cache for Applications->System Setting->Desktop in /home/yourName/.local/share/backgrounds – Dobob Dec 29 '15 at 6:50

Actually, I found it. Elementary OS stores wallpaper cache for Applications->System Setting->Desktop in:

~/.local/share/backgrounds

Really confusing to find especially after googling for solutions and finding multiple places where wallpapers can be stored.

  • Nice, that can be written as ~/.local/share/backgrounds – Ravan Dec 29 '15 at 7:10
