2: I cannot find the location of the newly installed wallpapers. Where can i find them?
THanks alot.

To keep backgrounds permanently, please copy the images
to /usr/share/backgrounds/.

New backgrounds, you add with "Change Background" on the
Desktop : Only the one currently used, is filed in

/home/"user"/.gconf/desktop/gnome/background/%gconf.xml
( A hidden file.)

Backgrounds, not used, are referred in
/home/"user"/.gnome2/backgrounds.xml
.....
