Wallpapers not showing in pantheon


Default path for wallpapers in pantheon is /usr/share/backgrounds/pantheon but when it is installed as a desktop in linux i.e arch linux its wallpapers are installed at /usr/share/backgrounds/elementary instead.

Desktop settings > background / wallpaper will try to find /usr/share/backgrounds/pantheon but may not be able to find.

The workaround is to create a symlink

$ sudo ln -s /usr/share/backgrounds/elementary /usr/share/backgrounds/pantheon

Close settings and reopen, it will start showing wallpapers in background selector.
