Bug#644030: general: 'Set as Desktop Background' does not work as expected. (Wheezy)
Upon right clicking on an image in an image-viewer, and selecting 'Set as
Desktop Background', the background image/wall paper does not change. Clicking
on the 'Open Background Preferences' button that then shows up on the image
viewer, opens the 'Control Centre' or Preferences.
I am being able to set images as background after importing them as desktop
background under 'Appearance>Background'.
Hope this helps.
Happy Debian user
