I have Ubuntu 12.04 installed. As a newbie, I followed instructions to load the Cinnamon and Gnome desktops for comparison purposes. After comparing, I decided I prefer the default Ubuntu desktop. My problem is, when I want to change my wallpaper now, I ALWAYS get the Cinnamon dialog box, not Ubuntu's. I have verified that I am choosing Ubuntu @ login, but I no Ubuntu options. Should I just un-install Cinnamon & Gnome?

Do you have the apple key or a key with a diamond on it? –  hexafraction Nov 26 '12 at 20:58
    
No, I don't. This is a Dell laptop that came pre-loaded with Windows 7. I am dual-booting to Ubuntu –  ChunkyDrew Nov 27 '12 at 4:55
    
I don't know how to mark this 'solved', but I just un-installed Cinnamon and the issue went away. Cinnamon is no longer among my login options. –  ChunkyDrew Nov 27 '12 at 16:59
