not that i would probably use it.

I hope people know how to add wallpaper on TC but just in case you don't.
Put the image in /opt/.backgrounds directory.
Click on Panel/Backgrounds
Click on ../ to see the image file.
Select and click Install.

One user asked me about the source of original artwork. It is from www.wallpaperlinux.com

One more thing the present capability of setting the background on TC does not support display of .svg format.

I have enlarged the png image of the logo and used it as wallpaper here:

and used the original png image of the logo and tile option here:
screenshot2

.svg is so amazing. until there is an official inkscape extension in tc, i have used the .dsl extension, but if i want to simply view one, i can load it in minefield and use mtpaint or the awesome menu tool to copy it.
