No-one likes staring at a rubbish desktop wallpaper.

Unfortunately for Ubuntu its recent crop of default wallpapers haven’t been the strongest in its seven-year history.

Long time reasons may remember that the GNOME “Stripes” wallpaper has been ubuntu-ized once before, but to be honest I wasn’t a massive fan of that version.

KDE Stripes

As awesome as the GNOME “Stripes” wallpaper is I’ve always been more keen on the KDE one.

So I also purple-ified it:-

Again, for those of you who are curious to tamper with it, here is the .XCF file.
