if you edit $/GNUstep/Library/AfterStep/Start/Desktop/.include file to 
include the directorys of pictures that you want to choose from, then 
you can use the Desktop>pictures option in the root menu to change you 
desktop background, in real time.

acceptable to vested health care interests. The truth is we need
bold proposals that will really help poor people and that an aroused
public will fight for.
