I am having the issue os it not working here either, I have followed you instruction to the letter, still no luck, and my console output is too long to post, over 4000 lines. Is there something that is missing? It shows the image in the settings window, but does not apply the wallpapers.

run this within a console and post the output, perhaps I'll find the error:

gnome-appearance-properties

... so you put the debian-bling folder inside /usr/share/backgrounds/ and the desktop-backgrounds-debbling.xml inside /usr/share/gnome-background-properties?
