I don't know, but I found this site. Hope it's of use to you.

I use fluxbox, so ...
fbsetbg -f /path/to/background.png
You can use that (install fluxbox, works in gnome)
Or if you prefer to stay in gnome you can use the slightly more verbose command :
gconftool-2 --type string --set /desktop/gnome/background/picture_filename "/path/to/background.png"
Note: backgrounds are often in /usr/share/backgrounds
