I've seen screenshots with different backgrounds on the AisleRiot card game. How do I set one in Ubuntu?

Here is a picture of the background I made in GIMP which I want to use in AisleRiot;

enter image description here

Please don't take credit for my image if you want to use it, I am planning on implementing this into the default theme of AisleRiot on 11.04.

That is a gorgeous image, congrats! Can I use it under the GPL3+, giving full credits and copyright to you? – MestreLion Aug 17 '14 at 17:57

At the moment, I think the built-in method to do this is broken.

You should be able to install themes by going to the "View" menu, selecting "Card Style," then selecting "Install card themes..." .

See this bug for gnome-games on Launchpad.

Please add yourself to the bug if you believe you are affected.

Oh I can do that, it's just that the background stays green and cannot be changed by any theme. It also doesn't work if I change the "baize.png" (background image) file manually. – MetaDark Mar 6 '11 at 17:02
Yes, I believe that's part of the bug. I've encountered the same thing. – belacqua Mar 6 '11 at 19:14
