Can someone remember which wallpaper is on this screenshot? I had it some time ago, I want to use it again, but I was unable to find it anywhere on my N900 (even checked themes folders). It's some snowy mountains, and it spans all 4 desktops very smoothly.

It's called alpine. The problem is that CSSU has another program called alpine (a mail reader I think), which is over-riding it. It may or may not be in the repos any more. :P

Wasn't there an app with this in it (along with a bunch of other panoramas)?
If I get around to pulling mine out, I think it has it. Prizm or something like that. I might have a .deb of it somewhere. I think the owners of it gave it away for free after a while.

No.. really folks.. It's alpine. It's even in the OVI store.

But as noted, alpine is also the name of a mail reader that's now in extras repos, so there's a name conflict. I know this because I have the theme installed, and all the app update tools keep wanting me to "upgrade" it to the more recent version, which is in fact a mail reader and not a theme...

So probably
Code:
sudo gainroot
apt-get install alpine=1.0.1
should fetch it. But then no more automatic upgrades for you You will always have to upgrade the packages one by one.

Interesting. Guess the Alpine mail client did indeed override it when I installed it. So if I get the theme back, the theme will overwrite the client? (frankly I'm just looking for the wallpaper, I'm satisfied with my current theme otherwise)

in FAM you have a "ban" functionality
simply ban the version(s) of alpine that are that #@$%& mail program
like there aren't 'nough other mail programs around

in HAM you have to add a file
Code:
block.list
just not sure where that would have to go

Download the file to your device extract it to some folder, then copy the image to use as your backgrouund.
Code:
sudo gainroot
apt-get install alpine=1.0.1 -dy
mkdir /home/user/MyDocs/alpine
dpkg -x /var/cache/apt/archives/alpine_1.0.1.deb /home/user/MyDocs/alpine
cp  /home/user/MyDocs/alpine/opt/themes/alpine/backgrounds/wallpaper*.jpg /home/user/MyDocs/alpine
Then clean up
Code:
rm -rf /home/user/MyDocs/alpine/opt
rm /home/user/MyDocs/alpine/wallpaper.jpg
Configure your desktops to use the wallpaper, which you might want to rename to reflect the origin, to not remove them accidentally.

Successful til dpkg line, as /var/cache/apt/archives doesn't contain alpine_1.0.1.deb. Where did it put it?
