    You likely do not have a DefaultDesktop.jpg file in /System/Library/CoreServices. Pick any image, could be one downloaded from the internet, from your iPhoto Library, and put it in there, and then name it "DefaultDesktop.jpg" You should then have in the background of your login window your selected image.

    He's talking about the log-in screen not the desktop.

    Remember that the spelling of the wallpaper must be with capital D's. It looks this way if I misspell or delete my own login wallpaper. Sure is odd if you are unable to get it back.
