After I upgraded Ubuntu 12.10 to 13.04, the wallpaper doesn't appear anymore. In instead, apeears a blank image. I already tried to change, but nothing happens.

Also, I already tried in Gnome 3 and Unity, and the problem persists.

Anyone can help me? Thanks.

This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

System Settings - Appearance - Wallpapers: you can choose a default wallpaper from 13.04. Also the default wallpapers from 12.10 are still available.

I also tried this, but this not solved my problem. – Rodrigo Apr 27 '13 at 1:57
The directory /usr/share/backgrounds contains the wallpaper images. Does this directory exist and does it contain wallpapers? – user85164 Apr 27 '13 at 7:36
