What privileges should be given to custom wallpapers in Ubuntu custom live cd ?

I am making a custom Ubuntu based distro, and for that I am using ubbuntu-builder. I added my wallpapers in /usr/share/backgrounds . I built the iso, and when I run it, there is no artwork. So, how and what privileges should be given to those files from chroot in ubuntu-builder?

the directory should be 755, the files 644. are they on the iso? wht permissions? you need to add them into a config file, xml format. –  bodhi.zazen Jun 23 '13 at 5:02
I didnt get the second part about xml file and the permission. –  Roshan George Jun 23 '13 at 7:06
I think the file is something along the line of /usr/share/gnome-background-properties/ubuntu-wallpapers.xml you will have to find and edit it. –  bodhi.zazen Jun 24 '13 at 12:55
can we rename that file and use it instead of ubuntu-wallpapers.xml ? –  Roshan George Jun 24 '13 at 13:16
