On my Feisty machine there was an Edubuntu "Young" background, but no young theme.  On
my Gutsy machine there is no "Young" background.  I wonder if something didn't get
missed and the "Young" theme or background was forgotten.  I think the default Edubuntu
theme is young with the Gartoon icon set and such, so all your missing is a younger
feeling background.  Go to and you should be able to find all the
backgrounds you want.  Here is a link to a tool for installing stuff easily from

I have never used it however, so I can't vouch for its stability.

Hope that helps.
