Include "path" [command]
Specifies the path to another directory, whose contents will be included
in this menu. If command is given, it will be applied to all items in the 
included directory as if a Command directive (see above) had been given, 
except that subdirectories of the included directory are also affected.

You probably want:

Include "/usr/share/pixmaps/backgrounds" Background
