    The 212
    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!

    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.
