I've just installed XFCE4 on Arch Linux, now I'd like to add an image in the wallpaper folder, someone know the full path. I'm searching, but I haven't found yet.

The wallpapers should be in /usr/share/xfce4/backdrops

if there isn't this folder you must create: go in the folder, right bottom on the mouse, open here terminal and digit

sudo mkdir backdrops

Then exit from the terminal, search your wallpaper and open terminal

sudo cp /path/image.png /usr/share/xfce4/backdrops

EDIT: or usr/share/backgrounds/xfce/ here you'll find the standard wallpapers
