Ubuntu – How to find out location / path of current active desktop background image (Ubuntu 18.04, GNOME)


I've set up custom desktop background image some time ago, and now I can't remember where it's located in my system. I really like the image, and want to know how to output image location so I can save it.

Best Answer

Launch Terminal and run the following command

gsettings get org.gnome.desktop.background picture-uri

This should show you the full path to the picture currently set as desktop background.
