I just upgraded my Ubuntu from 12.04 to 12.10 and I see when I right click on the desktop and click on change desktop background, all I get is the system settings dialogue and not the change desktop wallpaper dialogue.

How can I get it back?

UPDATE: (updated the title) I logged in using Gnome session and there when I click on change desktop background I am able to change the desktop background.

And when I do the same on Unity I am not able to do anything. It just takes me to the settings page.

It affects me too! I think you should file a bug report. –  Soroosh129 Mar 1 '13 at 17:06
Did you also upgraded from software manager? –  neo1691 Mar 1 '13 at 17:07

@neo1691 yes I upgraded from the update manager. –  Soroosh129 Mar 1 '13 at 17:20
@Soroosh129, you can ask your own question because of the mods you've done. –  user25656 Mar 1 '13 at 17:29
