Help enabling the artwork for KDE, Gnome, LXDE and XFCE in Debian Edu

The debian-edu-artwork package is responsible for activating our artwork
in Grub, the display manager and the desktop wallpaper.

But a lot has changed since Squeeze, and it isn't working as it should
any more.

Do you know how to set/change the background image in KDE, Gnome, LXDe
or XFCE, please help us get the setup of debian-edu-artwork right.

This is the current status:

       | grub  | *dm   | desktop |
 KDE   |  OK   |  OK   |  Wrong  |
 Gnome |  OK   |  OK   |  Wrong  |
 LXDE  |  OK   | Wrong |  Wrong  |
 XFCE  |  OK   | WRong |  Wrong  |

LXDE and XFCE uses lightdm.  Gnome uses gdm3 and KDE uses kdm.  So we
need to figure out how to change the wallpaper of lightdm to fix the
center column.

The desktop-base package in Debian provide the Debian default artwork.
It is probably a good idea to look at how it is working to figure out
how our artwork package should work.

The source for the debian-edu-artwork package is available from
<URL: svn+ssh://svn.debian.org/svn/debian-edu/branches/wheezy/debian-edu-artwork >

Happy hacking
