1. Compiz is eye candy and not really of much use, especially for an,
   "experienced user."
2. Some of the Ubuntu team appear on the list from time to time.  Only
   one (Oliver Grawert) is what you might call a regular.
3. Ubuntu is a free OS.  The 'official' support, OTOH, is a pay-for
4. This list is made up of, as the name says, users.
5. Compiz has recently been in a constant state of change.  That
   wallpaper setting is still fairly recent and not all Compiz users
   use it.
6. There is more than this one method of getting support from other
7. I (and many more, I'm sure) have asked numerous questions here that
   went unanswered for a much longer time than you waited.
8. Not every member reads every post every day.
9. You get what you pay for.
10.As always with Linux, "If you break it you get to keep both pieces."

As Peter Noone once sang, " ain't no good to whine."

And, BTW, I'm sorry I didn't step in and attempt to answer your query;
I think I may have been able to help you out.  (I'm not an,
"experienced user," but I /do/ love the eye candy!)

But I /am/ glad you got it all sorted.
