Just a thought: ...it would be a nice idea to have the desktop wallpapers list include THEIR company's logo too. :D
Thanks to all for giving directions. I did today a bit rough approach
"sudo cp 9.10-karmic.koala.1920x1440.jpg /usr/share/unity-2d/warty-final-ubuntu.jpg" to fix this single flaw.
But PLEASE - do you think that ANYBODY in the world can _REASONABLY_EXPLAIN!_ why can't we simply select ANY of the GOOD OLD wallpapers and use them right out of the box!???
I don think so!
Ubuntu is apparently just another Linux distro for people with plenty of time or students.
Why should I crawl the web for answers as a loser EVERYTIME while trying to setup ANYTHING - when I just wanna USE IT?! It's not only a question of an "extremely utterly awful purple background" or logon screen!. To be honest you could customize better even Windows 3.1 in the early nineties.
Recently I went thru "upgrade" to 12.04PP and it was a devastating experience. And after all the problems with that - it took me another day to set it up as it was before. In a fact it's still far from "AS IT WAS"...
P.S.: BTW meeting "Bloody Mad" Unity again pushed me to REALLY reconsider which distro I will use in the future. What a nasty and disrespectful default setting. But I have a strong feeling that whole ubuntu thing went downhill since koala's times.
In a fact - time is probably ticking out for ubuntu here as I've got already new free partitions for it's replacement and looking for a chunk of time to do it.
Plus "Karmic and older" wallpapers already luckily found @ ubuntu.ecchi.ca and downloaded. Even some of the Lucids were not THAT BAD. ;))))
