No, the screen was showing 4.1 with the background I use.  I sent this quite 
awhile ago!  I guess it was held for awhile to check the attachment.  
Actually I never installed it to 4.1 but it is the background I have on 
3.9.10 and when I went into KDE 4.1 it was there.  I also have a blue 
background on Gnome but I never really go there except to show people the 
different desktops available on this machine.  People can't believe this OS 
doesn't cost!    Just finished setting up my seventh Dell Ubuntu preinstalled 
laptop with Kubuntu-desktop!  They all came about because of my demonstations 
with my machine!  The Vista users were the most amazed; made their language 
and even their appearance way better!  They start smiling and had spring in 
their step!  They became whole new people!
