Gnome 2.24 is released, Get the Wallpapers
Finally after 6 months of hard work by developers, Gnome 2.24 is here today, with lots of new features and improvements. This time the wallpapers also become more beautiful than before thanks to the contest held 5 months ago.
For Ubuntu 8.10 Intrepid Users, to get those sexy new wallpaper, simple install the
gnome-backgrounds package from synaptics or from command line by
sudo apt-get install gnome-backgrounds. If you are staying with hardy or older version but still want to enjoy the new look, grab it from gnome’s ftp: http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/sources/gnome-backgrounds/2.24/gnome-backgrounds-2.24.0.tar.bz2
