    You can also try Variety Wallpaper Changer - a new application that I recently created. Is supports changing wallpapers from local sources, fetching from various online sources, applying effects on the fly and has many more nice features. You'll need Ubuntu 12.04 or newer for it, or a new version of Mint.

    To make it work on 12.04 (probably 12.10 to) you need to run the following commands.

    Code:
    sudo mv /usr/share/backgrounds/contest/precise.xml /usr/share/backgrounds/contest/precise.xml.backup 
    # 
    sudo mv /usr/share/backgrounds/contest/background-1.xml /usr/share/backgrounds/contest/precise.xml
    Then select the community wallpapers.
    Works great for me after changing the filename!

    If anyone was still watching this forum for Ubuntu 12.10 wallpaper changing, you don't need to have the exact name and location of quantal.xml.
    Just make your xml file wherever you want (e.g. animals.xml).
    Go to /usr/share/gnome-background-properties and make a copy e.g. of the ubuntu xml. Leave as many wallpaper records as you need, just fill the <name> and full path to <filename>.

    cd /usr/share/gnome-background-properties
    sudo cp ubuntu-wallpapers.xml my-wallpapers.xml
    sudo vim my-wallpapers.xml ...
    ...
    <wallpaper>
    <name>Animals</name>
    <filename>/home/meggie/animals.xml</filename>
    ...
    Enjoy!
