If you're not running Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat, you can download both the new Ubuntu 10.10 default wallpaper and the community wallpapers from HERE.

In other news, the Ubuntu Light Themes were also updated. There doesn't seem to be any changes to Ambiance but only on Radiance this time:

Also, the themes have been renamed back from -beta to Ambiance and Radiance.

We've uploaded the new Light Themes version to our Light Themes PPA along with the latest Murrine Engine and new icons so you can install all these from Maverick in Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx. To upgrade these packages in Lucid, use the following commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/light-themes
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
