I've set up several 12.04 desktop machine using the regular installer. However, on another machine I needed to set up software RAID so I used the alternate installer.

I noticed however, that the 12.04 wallpapers are not present on this new machine...just the ones from 11.10. Two questions:

1) Is this a bug? 2) How to get the 12.04 wallpapers?

Install it through

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-wallpapers-precise 

Install via the software center

For offline downloading through launchpad refer this

“ubuntu-wallpapers” source package in Precise

Or the site here

Ubuntu 12.04 Wallpapers Updated (Community, Default Wallpaper)

Through the Cd image Contents list it is there. Search for wallpapers there, you will find it.
