Ubuntu – How to customize the ubuntu gnome 3 desktop


This is maybe a stupid question, but how can I choose my own background image on ubuntu gnome 3?? I click on Settings -> Background -> then I click on the current background preview to change it but I see only the defaults images! No + symbol to add or something. On the 'Pictures' tab there is nothing to select, I get an empty white page? I am running ubuntu gnome 13.04 3.9.6-030906-generic.

A bit easier, or if you don't wanna move the files.

Open the chosen file in the file manager. It should open with Image Viewer/eog. Both the Image menu and the right-click context menu have an option called, "Set as Desktop Background."
