Xubuntu 12.04 ignores background setting

So I’ve upgraded through two Ubuntu versions to 12.04. One problem was that it didn’t remember the desktop background, and while it would be set temporarily when I updated it, the standard Ubuntu background would return after restarting.

Looks like the problem is in /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf, which is setup by default for Unity. Instead, it should say:


Now it all seems to be working correctly again. I presume this is a consequence of upgrading from old versions, and wouldn’t be required for a fresh Xubuntu installation.
