I am so sorry. I previously uploaded the wrong file (a screen-shot).

Please except my apologies. How stupid of me.

...it looks like you've uploaded just a screenshot and not the actual wallpaper file itself. Once you've corrected that, I'll be happy to download it.

Oh, and about the snow, if you're able to do the Compiz animations, there's a package you can download called compiz-fusion-plugins-extra (available in the Ubuntu repos) that has, among other things, a snow effect I like better (I used to use xsnow before I bought my current computer, which has an NVidia card in it, as the last one didn't).

Thank you for your comment, you wrote:

I tested it once more, after your comment and it seems to work fine.

If you use Mozilla Firefox as your web browser, it (standards) opens the file in the default bitmap viewer (in my case AOG or some such). You can save it to disk or in my case I save it to disk with the DownThemAll Firefox extension.

Ah yes, been there done that. For some odd reason I can't get Fire, Water nor Snow to work. I have all extras for Compiz-Fusion installed (using the Cylinder in stead of the Cube for my 6 virtual desktops).

I am strictly using nVIDIA based GPU's.

Happy Holidays to you and your Family!

Love is the only thing that matters...
