Description of problem:
If a KDE user selects a different wallpaper for the desktop and then tries to return to the default Mageia background he can't because /usr/share/mga/backgrounds/default.jpg is not included in the wallpaper selection.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Same in xguest
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Change wallpaper using - Right click desktop->folder view settings then try to return to original.
2.The only way is to navigate to /usr/share/mga/backgrounds/default.jpg which a new user would not be aware of.
Maybe a symlink in kdebase4-workspace:
ln -s /usr/share/mga/backgrounds/default.jpg /usr/share/wallpapers/default.jpg
And it should be a symlink to /usr/share/mga/backgrounds/default.jpg because this one is changed by mageia-theme-Default postinstall scriptlets.
/usr/share/mga/backgrounds/default.jpg is not owned by any package =>
The easy way is to add/create a package in mageia-theme so we don't rely on default.jpg.
We'll probably do it for Mageia2.
As suggested by ahmad you can simply create a symlink in /usr/share/mga/backgrounds.

Patch against mageia-theme spec
The above patch does not seem to have been applied ?
Nop, i'll do it later today so it would be ok for mageia.
A new packaged named mageia-theme-kde-background should be available soon on your mirror.
I'll add it later as a requires on Default & netbook-kde4-config package.
