Where are the Desktop wallpapers located in Lubuntu

On Lubuntu the wallpapers are located in the /usr/share/lubuntu/wallpapers directory.
To transfer your favourite wallpaper to this directory you will need root access.

As an example my favourite wallpaper is located as a .jpeg on my Desktop. In order to transfer this to the wallpapers directory we would issue the following command.

sudo cp /home/your_username/Desktop/your_image_name.jpeg /usr/share/lubuntu/wallpapers

Once transferred, select Preferences >> LXQT settings >> Desktop from the Lubuntu menu, then select the wallpaper you just transferred.
