i'm not sitting on a kububtu system right now, let's hope i remember right.
if you right-click the desktop, choose configure desktop, in the windows
where you see the pictures to choose from, there is and advanced button,
click it, in the new window, there should be something about the program
used to draw the desktop, try changing it to either the default (if that's
not already chosen) or some other program listed.
 hope it works
