comment Desktop shows a white or black background instead of wallpapers

revised Where can I find a Subversion 1.7 binary?
Fixed [y/n] prompts to show default response in upper case. Fixed [y/N] prompts so the cursor stays on the same line.

I tried rebooting, but get the same result...the options do not become enabled. I'm running usb-creator-gtk 0.2.23. What version do you have?
