Detailed Description

Since we are replacing Hippo, it is relatively trivial to add a background image to the Home View. The image could be set from the Sugar control panel.

Benefit to Sugar

Deployments could customize backgrounds for l12n purposes. Uses could customize the look of their machines. Background could add some structure to the Home View.


The changes would be to sugar/src/jarabe/desktop favoriteview.py and to the Sugar control panel
