Desktop background cannot be changed from default

I am using fresh install of F19. The system was installed yesterday and updated today. F18 have behaved correctly.

When I attempt to change a desktop background from the default one the result is just a black, blue or white background depending on a wallpaper chosen.

The hardware is Acer Aspire One ZG5 (Intel 945GSE chipset with the integrated graphics).

How could I change the background or what is to be set or installed to enable displaying the wallpaper correctly?

  1. Change it in Settings (menu in upper right corner) -> Background -> click on the picture with current background -> choose new

When the background is changed by the option 2. from the pschindl's answer. Everything works. So it seems that images included in installation are somehow damaged. It is not sure whether it is the problem of Fedora or Gnome.
