@abdulhakeem They should all be placed directly in /usr/share/backgrounds and not in its own folder.

I might consider changing that when 17.04 gets released.

Running this command as a normal user should give you the answer you're looking for:

pacman -Qlq ubuntu-wallpapers | grep /usr/share/backgrounds/ | egrep -v '/$|.xml'

What filepath do the actual wallpapers install to? I've installed this package and I cannot find them. I expected /usr/share/backgrounds but they're not in there

for compatibility with Mate desktop
you can add this lines to PKGBUILD at bottom of package() section:

# make background available for Mate desktop
mkdir ${pkgdir}/usr/share/mate-background-properties
cp ${pkgdir}/usr/share/gnome-background-properties/*.xml ${pkgdir}/usr/share/mate-background-properties/
sed -i 's/gnome-wp-list.dtd/mate-wp-list.dtd/' ${pkgdir}/usr/share/mate-background-properties/*.xml

yes xfce use a diferent path, they use /usr/share/backgrounds/xfce for the images, is even possible to do something??

Hmm, can I make the wallpapers automatically appear in xfdesktop's settings panel?
Currently I do symlinks to all images to /usr/share/backgrounds/xfce folder to achieve that.
