How to set the desktop background in Pantheon?

I have tried to use Switchboard to set my desktop background but for a reason that escapes me whenever I click on a wallpaper (to set it as my desktop background) nothing happens, there isn't even blue colouring around the wallpaper to indicate that it's been selected... This issue (or as I suspect, bug) is not just limited to when Switchboard is installed from the official Fedora repositories, it also happens when it's been installed from the decathorpe/elementary-nightly Copr. Is this the point in time when I should file a bug report and just hope the maintainers of these packages are quick to respond or is there a workaround to this issue? If relevant I am running Pantheon on Xorg.
