Gnome_by_JennyJenna has tons of wallpapers to decorate your favorite desktop. However the website isn’t really friendly to download them all. You have to go through a long list of wallpapers, click through each and download the wallpaper from the wallpaper page. Luckily, with the power of the command terminal and ftp you can get tons of wallpapers with a single command!

First you need to create a directory in your home directory, lets call it Wallpapers

 mkdir ~/Wallpapers

Now you need to connect to ftp servers


Next you will be asked to enter a username and password. “anonymous” will be your username and just press enter when prompted for the password.

Now lets navigate to the wallpapers on their servers

cd /pub/GNOME/teams/

You will also need to turn prompting off, you don’t want it bugging you asking you if you want to download each single file

prompt off 

Now lets download all 1280×1024 (assuming thats your resolution)

mget 1280x1024.jpg

Great huh? Now why don’t you rotate your wallpapers? Here check our 3 Great Ways To Rotate Your Linux Desktop article.
