I suspect Ubunteando means "by default". Common people doesn't know about gnome-backgrounds packages. It also may be that gnome-background is installed already and the wallpapers will appear there... just in case :)
Please include the wallpapers by default. New users don't know anything about installing wallpapers, so why aren't these included by default? The elephant skin and the ibex wallpaper get bored after a while.

The tone here is not the point and I'd say its childish to base your vote "mainly for the tone".
We are a bunch of grownups here, and if we use manners to which you are not used around here, this further proves our desperation.
Because he have high expectations from Ubuntu, and it seems people behind it aren't doing anything even in a key issue as design. Even when most people around here and standing up for it.
I can understand why the "LOOKS" are not so important for CODERS. But I'M SURE that if some Ubuntu supervisor, with knowledge of marketing read this comments he would inmediately understand the importance of this and would provide a much more satisfying answer to all of us.
And yeah, it is sad to recognize in the Dev team around here the same kind of people that made the "average PC user" prefer Windows and MAC OS over Linux.
I thought this was different, but it seems its not.
I'm not a "whiny three year old", I'm just a commited and deceived 23-year old.
although I believe that the more generic solution when you get into the background dialog is to have a button to take you to the repository of theme-packs (not just "theme" but backgrounds, colour sets, pretty icons, etc.)
Design dialogs with logical next actions ... what do you do when you don't see anything you like?
