Here's the original inquiry again:
> I seem to recall someone posting the procedure to "restoring" the Options
for setting a desktop background (Center-Scale-Zoom-Tiles-etc) I have a
friend who's Dell Inspirion laptop was on its last legs, so I assisted them
in installing F18, but the feature for handling the desktop background is
gone...(missing? kidnapped?) Can anyone help with what needs to be done in
order to get it back?

I have a Dell Inspirion  1420 and found this feature - in Gnome after
clicking the user in the upper right corner, System Settings --> Background
(all of which is probably redundant as you have probably done this) - then,
with seemingly the same issue you have where there are no buttons, after
days I found that clicking the image is where the access point is.

Hope this helps,
