Because it changes the GConf settings, but not DConf...

The context menu doesn't show-up in Ubuntu 12.04. And I tried installing the script using Ubuntu-Tweak, but that one didn't work either.

Ubuntu Tweak does install the context menu to set the wallpaper, but it does not wallpaper does not change.

I can confirm this is still not working in 12.10 (Unity).

sudo apt-get install nautilus-wallpaper
nautilus -q

No entry in context menu.

Because other nautilus-* extensions work as expected, perhaps this one should be removed from the repositories or fixed.
