Remove wallpaper

I've got a right-menu option of "Configure Desktop..." that will let you 
choose no wallpaper as an option.  I think I had to install kde-desktop 
to get that option, though.  I think strict Kubuntu wants to route you 
through the System Settings option on the K-Menu.  I just tried System 
Settings, and the Desktop icon under "Look and Feel" went to the same 
place that "Configure Desktop..." does on my system.
