I don't understand? Are you just saying sorry for changing your dekstop (which you dont need to :P, most people change, i certainly did)...

Or do you want help changing it?

Right click the desktop, go to "Change desktop backgrond", click "Add" and chose the background you want.

Easily done: choose System->Preferences->Appearance->Background and have at it.

If you want a different wallpaper and icon and other similar stuff,you can look for Art Manager under Applications->Add/Remove and it will let you dowload the previews of the wallpaper & co,before you download them. :popcorn:

Don't apologize. The freedom to choose your own background, among others, is yours.

Try devianart for background/wallpaper options. Other sites exist, too. Google for "wallpapers"

Enjoy the linux/Ubuntu experience :)

You have to download a wallpaper first :p;)

No, you must have the same wallpaper as everybody else. Why are you trying to be difficult?[-X

Not necessarily, you can use any photo you happen to have as background.

Or, if your really creative, you could make a wallpaper with GIMP.

I like making wallpaper from xstarfish. It's in the repositories, and whatever you end up with will be an original.
