    It's not there.

    OpenSuse has it well hidden. :-(

    ... same here. Including my special personal ones. I just create my backgrounds using the same structure as the default ones in the wallpapers directory.

    You can use pictures located _anywhere_ on your hard disk as wallpaper, and you can select _any_ folder.
    Right-click on the desktop and select "Default Desktop Settings", or even easier, just drag and drop a picture from your file manager f.e. to the desktop (widgets have to be unlocked for this to work though).

    Btw, @jonte1: you DO NOT have to be root to connect to a wireless network with NetworkManager.

    Hi
    In GNOME if you want your wireless connection to be available to other users, yes you do need to enter the root password. To setup my HP wireless printer I need to be root user, but as a user can control the printer for my needs via hp-toolbox. Both of those root user needs I would consider an admin task on a system as well as enabling the cups service etc.
