White wallpaper in Ubuntu 13.04

Each new version of Ubuntu is always accompanied by some turbulence. 🙂

I did an update from 12.10 (Quantal Quetzal) to 13.04 (Raring Ringtail) - And not a clean install, from scratch - and the wallpaper became white, even switching it to another one. Snooping on the Internet, I found a commentary with a simple configuration that enables a background option in Gnome. Although several comments said to disable the display of icons on the desktop to run, here usually worked with icons.

To use the solution, has a form using the graphical configuration tool dconf-editor - Is kinda like messing with Windows regedit, then you can not say it's easy. I think the simplest to put the command lines magic here, you should take in a terminal:

Change the wallpaper and ready!

I have not found any problem with this solution. They find something, put in comments!Every new Ubuntu version comes with small problems! 🙂
