Description of problem:
When you install the latest CentOS Stream distribution in its workstation variant, it doesn't provide the artwork created for it, but a black screen as wallpaper.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install http://mirror.stream.centos.org/9-stream/BaseOS/x86_64/iso/CentOS-Stream-9-latest-x86_64-dvd1.iso
2. Select Workstation Variant during the installation process.
The desktop wallpaper is a plain black color. No artwork.
The desktop wallpaper shows the artistic motif created for it in https://github.com/CentOS/centos-logos/releases/tag/90.4.
The last compose (date 2021-10-14) already ships centos-logos-90.4. However, the /usr/share/backgrounds/ directory is still empty. Probably something in the package spec file?

I believe the problem is that the backgrounds are part of the centos-backgrounds subpackage. That is built , but it is not being installed by default when selecting "server with GUI" or "workstation" in the installer. In fact I don't even see it in the repos, meaning it's not being included in the compose.
We're also missing symlinks for default backgrounds so desktops will pick it up.
For example, the following file paths should be symlinks pointing to the correct files:
I just checked. This is NOT a CentOS Stream problem. This is a RHEL 9 problem, that is also affecting CentOS Stream 9.
I'm okay with adding a
to gnome-session. devack+
