Download Tons of GNOME-Specific Wallpapers With One Command


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

$ mkdir ~/Wallpapers

$ cd Wallpapers

Now you need to connect to gnome.org ftp servers
$ ftp ftp.gnome.org
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/art.gnome.org/backgrounds
You will also need to turn prompting off, if you want to download each single file
> prompt off
Now lets download all 1280*1024  resolution wallpapers (assuming thats your resolution)
> mget * 1280×1024.jpg
