Bug Description

to reproduce boot the dialy iso of lubuntu xenial from Feburary 28th or later and boot into a live session or a new install. Note dist upgrading on a previous install will not work as config files in your home folder for an already existing user will use that wallpaper as that is intended behavior but that is not what is broken. These images have

  Installed: 0.60
  Candidate: 0.60
  Version table:
 *** 0.60 500
        500 http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu xenial/universe amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

on these iso and boots to a black backgruodn when on fresh install or a new install.

I expected the last stable release wallpaper to appear at least until the wallpaepr for 16;04 was ready and put in the correct way to start in live session as I like the team work but don't want to miss them by default. Instead I got a black wallpaper instead when I booted the live session. pcmanfm is loading the desktop backgroudn with the lubuntu desktop so it is not pcmanfm part but rather maybe the file it is poining to.

This affects lubuntu desktop i386 too.

The files are there in /usr/share/lubuntu/wallpapers, and can be selected. After that the wallpaper is shown. Apparently they are not selected now (this bug appeared recently).

The installed system's login screen has the wallpaper, but the logged in desktop is black.

Reading the changlog of lubuntu default settings suggests that it might be this package as that loads the pcmanfm desktop for that.
