How to change desktop background from command line in Unity?

gconftool-2 --type string --set /desktop/gnome/background/picture_filename /path/file.jpg

doesn't work. It changes the variable but the background doesn't change.

gconftool-2 --get /desktop/gnome/background/picture_filename

outputs the file that I set for desktop background. Any ideas?
