    I'm not sure what desktop environment you are running, but in Gnome it's:

    right-click on desktop
    change desktop background
    "remove" or "add..."

    Is that not working?

    I personally keep a .wallpaper folder with all my favorites in it in the /home folder for selecting additional wallpapers as desired.

    looking in right places
    A lot of distros put them in /usr/share/backgrounds. Try looking in there. You will need to be root to delete any images in that section.
