Whether or not you’re a fan of GNOME 3’s default ‘stripy blue’ wallpaper there’s no denying that it is striking.

If you plan on using GNOME Shell in Ubuntu 11.10 (it’s just a click away) – or if you’ve made the ultimate sacrifice and have it installed it in 11.04 – the following Ubuntu-flavoured variant of GNOME’s default wallpaper can add some Ubuntu-flavoured purple warmth back to your desktop.

The modded-drape comes curtesy of Felipe Cabargas, who provides four distinct versions in three varying purple hues.

You can grab all of the wallpapers in all their 1920×1200 glory from Felipe’s blog (link since broken).
