    Accidentally deleted /Library/CoreServices folder
    I did something stupid,

    Playing around with my computer I wanted to change the login background and used this command in terminal:

    cd /System/Library/CoreServices
    sudo mv DefaultDesktop.jpg DefaultDesktop_org.jpg
    sudo cp /Path/to/picture/you/want/to/use/image.jpg DefaultDesktop.jpg

    I copied and pasted it without reading the command.

    I dragged the image I wanted to replace it with, but when I went to go check it out, the background was blank or just blue. Any suggestions. I have leopard, and I left my upgrade disk at college, any ideas?


    Thanks in advance for any help!

    Specs:
    Way... way too many specs to list.
    if that's all you did you shouldn't have deleted anything. It should have given you an error saying that /Path/to/picture/you/want/to/use/image.jpg DefaultDesktop.jpg didn't exist.

    If you do

    cd /System/Library/CoreServices
    sudo cp -p DefaultDesktop_org.jpg DefaultDesktop.jpg

    It'd be back to where it was.. or you chould just use the cp to copy the file you want to use to the /System/Library/CoreServices.
