Dear Jonas,

The one at /usr/share/wallpapers  is the regular KDE 4.2 wallpaper.  ~/ 
.kde/share/wallpapers does not exist in my OS.  The one I used for my 
desktop was a part of the Intrepid Desktop effects, I believe.  There 
must have been 20 to choose from.  The one I like is incredible.  I must 
find it again.  I don't show an email address for you, and I am sure the 
file is too large for the List, so I can't show it to you.  If you can 
get an email address to me somehow, I will send you a picture of my 
desktop just prior to removal of .kde/.  I liked it so much, I sent 
screen images to my friends.  It is incredible artwork, obviously done 
on a computer.

By the way, I am using Thunderbird for my email because Kmail is broken, 
and I don't have a solution for that problem.  In Kmail, a box precedes 
my response to an email that contains the return address to the list and 
the return address to the sender.  When I need to respond off-list due 
to a screen print, which is too large, or a response to issues off 
topic, I simply right-click on the user's email address and select send 
to that address.  It is a great feature, if it is not on Thunderbird.  
This was the first time I needed it and it wasn't there.  I suppose you 
may not want private emails too.  Either way, it should be a wish list 
item for Thunderbird.
